Before you learn C

You should learn how to use search engines. Your question is on the web and there are prior answers.

My answer is that as a programmer your first lesson is not how to learn C but how to use search engines.

Start at google.com and put your title question in the box and press return.
Something amazing happens.

Also, why a video? I used one book which is now on the web. Here's the PDF:

My two cents worth...

You are wise to start with C and not C++ or Objective C. That said, I doubt you will find a complete C course on video, unless you subscribe to a course on a web site that specializes in learning these languages. Keep in mind that C is an old language, about as dead as Latin today. But starting with basics, C has plenty of power to do basic tasks. However, you will need to learn more enhanced languages after C. Once you learn C, you can expand to C++ and even Objective C. I agree with R. Proffitt that mastering a good search engine is a required prerequisite to on-line learning.

My advice from a couple of years of self-teaching programming languages, is to find a good online course that combines video with exercises and often a text, such as the courses offered on Udemy and Lynda.com. You might find an old copy of 'The C programming language' by Kernighan & Ritchie (try to get the C Answer Book too).I am an old man now, so I still like to have a reference text to read, but it seems nowadays that you can get almost any question answered on the net, usually on a forum or two about C.

Go for it. You will find it tickles the mind.

I forgot to add that you will have to have some basic programs to program with C, a text editor, a compiler, a linker, and some form of version control. Luckily, the open source community has all this available for a kind word and perhaps a donation. My iMac OS X has all of the above included as part of the OS X package (and part of UNIX). I don't know whether Windows has these same programs.

You will easily figure this out as you begin any course.
