I didn't download the video but I may be able to help.

If you're making glass try making it have some depth. Add a shell modifier.

If you want a realistic glass effect with reflection, refraction, distortion you should use a mental ray material. Push F10 and scroll to the bottom of the "common" tab and open "assign renderer" rollout and next to "Production:" is a button "..." click and select mental ray. Open material editor, select a material and click "Standard" -> now select "Arch and Design" -> click the "select a template" rollout and you'll see three glass options. Try all three to see what gives the best result.

Hope that helps.
