I'm starting to learn how to run a server and decided to learn Ubuntu as I was told it's the most newbie friendly.

Can the more experienced folks here suggest some good video resources to learn Ubuntu that helped you when you were starting out? I'm a total newbie to server management and only have software experience.

Video, probably not. There is not many (any?) topics for sysadmins that translates well to video. Books, Absolutly

YouTube finds some video when searching for "ubuntu server" but I doubt that they have much value for learning.

The Ubuntu Server Guide should be a better way to get started.
