I would call customer service at singer.com they are very helpful, Is your needle inserted right with flat side facing the back? Inserted all the way up? Watch your video again, and read your manual. Sometimes, it something so simple as lint or a piece of the needle still in there, take it apart again and try.

here are some suggestions change the needle--make sure it's turned the right way when inserting the new needle into the needle bar holder check for burrs on the needle plate and in the bobbin area try a different thread, some thread is just not very good
If you bought this machine at WalMart, I recommend you return and the go to JoAnn Fabrics. Walmart can buy millions of these machines and pay next to nothing for them. I don't even suggest a beginner buy this machine.
You really should go on the Singer website and look up support and frequently asked questions. If, you cannot find your manual they have it there to download for free. I really think that you are not threading the machine right, check it with the presser foot up and the thread should feed freely, then lower the presser foot and it should not feed at all or very little. Most of the bunching of thread underneath is the fault of the top thread not the bobbin. Make sure you turn the handwheel towards you never away from you. Also, check your needle, inserted flat side away from you and, if it were me, I would use a new needle before I sewed again, This machine comes with a dvd, try watching it.
