Are there any good video lectures for learning commutative algebra at level of Atiyah-Macdonald?

I doubt there are any.` – Rankeya Nov 6 '11 at 6:42
There doesn't seem to be any video lectures, but I found an open source MIT course with some problems and reading material.… – E.O. Nov 6 '11 at 7:03

I do not know there are the video lecture of Commutative Algebra for the beginner. However, we have some lecture from MSRI's conferences, which are avaiable on

For example, here is the lecture about the history of Commutative Algebra : C.A lecture

You can browse in MSRI webpage, it contains more informations and videos avaiable, for example : Commutative Algebra: Interactions with Homological Algebra and Representation Theory

Good videoes!But how to play or download? – Strongart Feb 22 '12 at 11:15
@Strongart : You can follow the link in the website. We can directly download them, and we can play with the helping of Klite codec, which is avaiable here : – Knumber10 Feb 22 '12 at 15:30
I download the K-Lite Codec Pack 8.4.0,but cannot open it.I do not know much about the computer. – Strongart Feb 24 '12 at 11:20
@Strongart: You could not open K-Lite Codec Pack or the videos? You just have to download it first and then double click to install the codecs. Then, enjoy the lecture :) – Knumber10 Feb 24 '12 at 14:58
I can not open K-Lite Codec Pack and can not find the place to download MSRI videoes. – Strongart Feb 25 '12 at 7:01

Look at this. A first course of commutative algebra(1-30) and some others, which is made all by myself! But the main language is Chinese (mixing some English), maybe you need someone to translate it (English title means pure English).
