Introductory Video for using AX-12A Dynamixel Servos

I am very new to using Dynamixel servos, and when I began a project that utilized these servos I had no idea how to use them. Here is a video explaining everything I learned after a few weeks of using these servos, for those who have never used anything more complicated than a PWM - controlled Arduino servo. For this example, I’m using an Arduino Uno and a Dynamixel Shield as the servo controllers, and the Arduino IDE as the coding environment.
Here is the link to the video:
