This is rather a poor quality video - lots of background noise etc. but there are some interesting bits in it.  The whole thing is about 73 minutes long so if you just want to hear the poems then skip as follows:-
@ 25 mins in - riddle 47,
 @ 30 - Deor,
@ 34 The Wife's Lament - I liked this one,
 @ 40 - riddle 8,
@ 42 - the Wanderer,
 @ 54 - riddle 25,
 @ 57 - Wulf & Eadwacer,
 @ 62 - riddle 45,
@ 64 - the Riming Poem
and finally at 71 minutes in - riddle 41.
