What I sometimes do is go Fullscreen, but then Esc out of it. When you Escape out of it you'll notice your screen view is larger than before. Alternatively, you can try Cntrl/Cmd +/- keys to zoom in and out but I haven't found that method too effective.

I've watched a lot of videos here, on youtube, and udemy with different devices(tablets, laptops). I found that using computer reading glasses help. Also changing the contrast of the screen might help.

If you can afford it then get a second monitor. It doesn't have to be high end, as long as it's big enough and high enough quality that you can use it efficiently while watching the videos on one screen and then code on the other. I've done it for years and I would never go back to one monitor. It's obviously not necessary but it really helps.
