Dari - 78 lessons and counting. The lessons are words on the screen and commentary from the teacher, who grew up speaking Dari in the U.S. A nice, free intro with as much content as some of the cheaper courses out there:

Arabic

This is from a program by Sheikh Yusuf Estes, an Islamic scholar known for his sense of humor. I'm not interested in learning Arabic at the moment, but I would like to watch the series of videos just because he seems so entertaining. The original doesn't really have any Islamic teachings in it, but it seems these lessons have been edited slightly by the poster.

The first of 8:

Evan Millner's Latinum course has already been mentioned, but now he is starting a course in literary French. If you ever watched Mr. Millner's courses you know he uses older textbooks & methods in his videos. The French courses that he is using are from the 1800s. The one he is using for the course right now is called "The Serial and Oral Method of Teaching Languages; Adapted to the French" by Louis Manesca. You can find the book on Google books.

The method involves folding a notebook page in half to form a left & right column, and then taking a dictation from the teacher. In the left column you write the English and in the right column you write the French. After a few of these dictations he asks questions in French to which you are to write out (on a separate piece of paper, not in the notebook) or say aloud.

So far he has two lesson videos (the first one is about 45 minutes and the second one is over an hour), an introductory video, and a video explaining the materials needed by the student to complete the lessons.

His YouTube channel is:

look in his playlists for French Course.

I just checked out the first two lessons and while I applaud Evan Millner's efforts, I find the course all in all simply too slow-paced and too rigid.
Sticking to the method to the letter, he wastes valuable time by slowly spelling out the letters of each French word individually instead of using modern technology to display the words on the screen after he said them.
I'm all in favor of oral methods and I know that writing down vocabulary helps memorizing it, but, IMHO, being force-fed each letter is not the way to go.
Also his prononciation, though generally not so bad, leaves much to be desired. For example, he mispronounces even simple words such as "oui" in the phrase "oui, monsieur". For this reason alone, I wouldn't recommend the course.

I can see why he may not want to put words into the video simply because he's going to be making several long videos and spelling out the words may take too long to edit. I don't know, I don't know anything about video editing. Of course, he could just write out the words on a sheet of paper and show them. The course would probably work a lot better in an actual class with a chalkboard or whiteboard where the students could see the words written out. Of course, nothing is preventing Mr. Millner from buying and using a whiteboard.

I do admit his pronounciation isn't the best, and he admits his accent is at best fair. I was surprised when I watched the first video and he pronounced "oui" as "way" when I was taught it is pronounced "wee" or "oo-wee" or something else, but definitely not "way." His degree is in Medieval French Literature, so perhaps that is how they pronounced "oui" during the Middle Ages? Is there some dialect that pronounces "oui" as "way" and he just learned a strange way to pronounce it?

Also, he clearly says the course isn't to learn modern street French, but a way to learn how to read French c. 1850, since that was about the time the course he is using was published.

I know this thread is supposed to be about YouTube language links, but here is his podcast so any critics can see if it gets better the further along it goes:
