The only thing I would add to the video would be to smear a layer of fresh motor oil to the rubber o-ring before installing the filter to the engine.

I also pre-fill the spin-on filters before installing them. The oil pressure is right there after starting the engine after an oil change because the pump doesn't have to fill the filter up first and delay critically needed oil pressure.
I don't know if the cartridge housing will hold fresh oil before installing the filter element. The housing is usually empty by the time I change the element, so I believe that they do drain out into the crankcase rapidly. I have never had a long delay in building pressure or bearing rap after start up from changing the oil in the cartridge style engines.
