a. There's a sticky video thread
b. I hate it when people post videos without the build used
c. Not a single one of those people on the big graveyard fight attacked you. 90% of those fights your team had more members fighting at the point. Of course you felt good. Every class would in that situation.
Trying going into a real match and that feeling will go away fast.

Also those were some insanly bad opponents.

No offense but it's people like you I hate on these forums. Playing ele once against insanely bad opponents, where it's always 3 of you vs 1-2 of them, and then thinking ele is completely fine (or even OP as you state).
Besides that one fight against a mesmer there was no single fight were you didn't have more players than the enemy. And you didn't even show the full fight against the mesmer which makes me think it wasn't 1v1 at all.

The only positive thing I can say is that for a first time ele you did really well with attunement dancing.

I liked the music at the beginning.  It had a good celtic vibe to it!

Unfortunately AetherMcLoud is right in one regard: that you weren't really being focused.  Condition specs are all over eles and guardians because that is their purpose in tPvP. You had a relatively easy ride, so its definitely more enjoyable!

I wouldn't say ele is anywhere near OP so lets not get too crazy, but its definitely a very fun class to play.  You're always busy!  What i think you'll find is that once you play some better teams that properly focus, boonstrip and condition you, you're going to need to alter your build a bit for lots of condition removal and more survival based utilities - but thankfully this doesnt make the class any less enjoyable to play; you just wont see too many 2-3k AE dmg numbers.

Good first ele experience.  I'm glad you had fun.  =)

Yeah AetherMcLoud is right...
900 toughness is like a .5 shot kill. As someone who has been playing the ele since launch and has re-traited a few times to test things out and figure out how the ele works best, power builds simply don't work. Yes you can hit for a load of damage, this was how I started out - Full Fire and full Water. It's simply not a feasible build though, when you get hit you will die (and don't go saying "don't get hit", dodges are limited so you will get hit at some point).

An elementalist without points traited into Earth simply can't survive - it's the most underpowered profession in the game simply because if you don't trait a specific way then you're dead.

We have an entire section for videos: http://www.guildwars2guru.com/videos/

Not to mention the threads already mentioned.

You are fooling yourself, user. Nothing here is what it seems. ANet is not the plucky hero, Guru is not an evil empire, and this is not the grand arena.
