Ive always just put the string on my guitar when changing them, but apparentely it is better to "lock them" by wrapping it around the tuning post?Ive been trying it today, but no matter how tight I pull it around the post, it ends up coming loose and bubbling out, like this:

So, they are on now and in tune, but have a "bubble" sticking out.

When I change strings on acoustics I pass the string through the tuner bring the end around and under the string then bend it back upwards. So the same as on the video. I then turn the tuner so the string starts winding round...the first full turn goes over the end that you are going to cut and the second turn goes under...that way the end is sandwiched between the tightly wound string around the peg. Might not be correct but works for me. I can't remember where I got that from but it looks neater.
