It would be great to have a video tutorial for setting up Lightroom CC on a second computer. I am interested in how to transfer customized things like watermarks, export presets, etc. (all of the things I have setup customized on this computer so I don't have to recreate on a second computer). I can easily find tutorials for how to sync Photoshop settings/preferences into the cloud to be used on a second computer, but not how to do this for Lightroom. I just finished up a support chat with Adobe and was told to suggest this since no such tutorial exists.

As far as a video goes, I'd be afraid to see how many people would screw up their machines. Especially as I read here some of the problems people have and it's obvious they have not become familiar with working in Lightroom.

Moving settings can be done and is relatively easy "IF" you are comfortable moving around in folders.

Many people find this tutorial very helpful (it's not a video, though):
