Good video - nice clear explanations which demystify time signatures. I've always contended that main part of Pink Floyd's "Money" is in 7/4, not 7/8, but the principle is still the same.

I have at least two printed versions of "Money"-- one in an old anthology songbook that was called Space Rock, and another in a more recent Pink Floyd Anthology songbook. The Space Rock version shows it as "3/4 4/4," with alternating bars of 3/4 and 4/4. The Pink Floyd Anthology version shows it as "7/4," with the alternating bars of 3/4 and 4/4 combined into bars of 7/4. So you're right, and anyone who tries to tell you that it's written in 7/8 time is wrong. ;)
