Can't run program because of errors...

So I followed this simple video and made the changes exactly as the tutor described. I also installed Genymotion and the plug in, added a device and the emulator loads fine. But when I clicked Run as instructed, I got 7 errors in the appcompat_v7 & the res > values file? Weird because I haven't done anything apart from what was shown in the video! Please could you give me some insight as to where these came from and how to sort out? Thanks!

If you are using eclipse might i suggest cleaning your project files. This helps me when errors crop up like that. In the project tab, click "clean" and make sure all your in-use projects are selected!
