Dennis Wildfogel also created an original TED-Ed lesson on the concept of actual infinity. You can watch it here.
Another great place to watch videos on infinity and other number related concepts is Numberphile.
Here are a few of their specific videos dealing with infinity, prime numbers, etc.:
In addition to online resources, there are also some outstanding books dealing with the concept of infinity. Here is a very short list that I would highly recommend:
The Infinite Book: A Short Guide to the Boundless, Timeless and Endless by John Barrow
The Mystery of the Aleph: Mathematics, the Kabbalah, and the Search for Infinity by Amir D. Aczel
To Infinity and Beyond: A Cultural History of the Infinite by Eli Maor
