I just found this video, by Eric Peppe.

"I am replacing a high treble string on a grand piano to the soundtrack of myself playing Beethoven's Rage Over A Lost Penny on the same piano (not at the same time, but using the new string)."

Lousy technique! Cranking tuning pins up and down like that is not a good idea.

Nope. Nope. Nope. Lousy, indeed! Coils should be wound on a dummy pin, and then transferred to the pin in the piano (which should be backed out 1.5 times). The method shown will kill the pin torque. It also looks like the coils aren't seated correctly....
