No...not a video but have seen it on a scope more times to count. Here are a couple of crude pics of what a normal signal looks like along with a signal with massive x-over distortion.
Normal sine wave -
Sine wave with crossover distortion...note the notch at the zero crossing point of the wave -
Contrary to popular belief, crossover distortion is not a good indicator of the bias setting of an amp and should never be what you go by to bias the amp. Many other things influence crossover such as the amount of NFB.
