I enjoy GM Yasser Seirawan's videos from the St Louis Chess Club. There are videos covering a wide range of topics and for different playing levels, from beginner to more advanced.

Here is a St Louis Chess Club sample:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qejc9ISNMBU

He also has other videos on Youtube; just search Yasser Seirawan while on Youtube.

My advice is this:

John Bartholomew: 

Chess fundamentals playlist

Climbing the rating ladder playlist

Those are the most important. After you are done you should check Tournament chess and standard chess playlists. In those 2 you will se the thought process behind every move of strong IM.

ChessNetwork: 

Beginner to chess master playlist - some videos are easy but some are over 2 hours long - those are for tactical and strategical play

Hanging Pawns:

Chess Middlegame Ideas playlist

Chess Endgames

Apart from those 2, you could check his training games and road to GM playlists, those could be of use to you as well. This channel has great videos on various openings. Those you could also check out, although probably not now, but in a few months as right now you do not need to concern yourself with exact opening lines. Even when you are a lot stronger, you only need to know some variations superficially. But if you decide to use a certain opening, it is ok to be somewhat familiar with it. For now however, just follow basic opening principles.

ChessCoach Andras:

Amateur Mind playlist

Inside my head playlist

Agadmator's channel is great as well if you wish to hear the analysis of some master game in a normal language, the language we weaker players can understand.

Hopefully that will be enough. I am sure there is more than that out there. Personally out of everything I have mentioned, John Bartholomew's and Hanging Pawns content I consider to be gold mines. Pretty much everything there is more or less useful.

This is real deal. I would like to add Gotham Chess and Eric Rosen.

I will echo this. Agadmator is also great for learning chess history and seeing how the best play the game
