The video demonstrates that the current Live CD ISO as well as the current pacman packages are suitable for installing an encrypted system that boots without errors.
Using the arch-audit package, the current CVEs are shown before and after enabling [testing].

Recorded using OBS Studio. Used settings: 1280×720, 30 fps, 2500 kbps.

This is a scripted installation: A script runs on the VirtualBox host and installs Arch Linux automatically inside a virtual machine. It also supervises the progress of the installation.
