The vid doesn't work for me (youtube takes ages to load) but alternate picking is just picking in alternating directions for each note.

a down must follow an up and an up must follow a down. Even when changing strings.

Some people find it hard and some people do it naturally. The key to getting good at it, like everything, is practice. Use a metronome and concentrate on getting the pattern right. eventually it'll become second nature.

I thought it was that, but this guy is playing it so it looks like one stroke, where he mutes the first note he plays, then pulls back and plucks a second string which rings.

it's still alternate picking if he's changing the direction each time he picks a string.

e.g.

A----7---7---8---7-------------
E--0---0---0---0---------------
