Please wear Leather gloves when using these sharp tools. They will save your fingers. (My wife's idea!)
UPDATE: 1-4-2016:
On a ipod that has never been opened before I have addition advice. Place the first blade in the top center, it is a weak area that allows that blade to slip in easily. Then use a plastic pry tool and insert it into the top near the blade and slide it around to the LH side, then work on the side as shown in the video.
Thank you towercl for the following information:

I followed Johns instructions but added a little bit to it. Rather than estimate where the locking clips are located (where the blades should go) I marked, on removable tape, where they are (a bit over the top but I was in no hurry) :-

Position Of Clips :-

Sides - Measured From Bottom Edge - 17mm, 37mm, 63mm and 84mm

Top - Measured From Top RH Corner - 25mm
