I don't have time to watch your tutorial. It's pretty arrogant to ask, so I don't know what you've done. Why not post screenshots?

As for setting an upnode: align a shape to the knee and push it forwards locally so it's dead-on perpendicular to the kneecap, then select the goal of the IK and, in the motion tab, push the upnode button (forget what it's called) and pick the shape you just made. Oh yeah, obviously, select-and-link the shape to the IK goal.

Of course you may be having a totally different issue and therefore I just wasted my time writing that to you.

What you are saying it is for when the knees moves straight so bending them or moving them here and there then we need a controller for knees which we attach/tie it with Ankle IK chain throught IK Solver plane (pick target)

But my problem is a bit different when i move down then hip bone, knees intersect each others.
here you go

Have you actually set targets... they are not visible in your screenshot?
If you have set targets, then does a knee move when you move its target?
