Those video tutorials are great for teaching you how to knit in the round. But there's one thing they don't show you: where to place your yarn at the beginning of each round. I had to figure this out for myself. I put the working yarn behind both needles. What you need to do is place the working yarn coming from inside the tube. When I begin my round, I place the working yarn BETWEEN the two needles. This eliminates that unwanted yarn over at the end of the round. I suspect this is where you're getting your extra stitch from.
