While I think both professionals have excellent tutorials, the weakness is they do not establish a systematic learning plan. You need to learn elements in a progressive way, snd will have problems knowing where to start and then what to learn next. I would recommend you look at the piano method books. Faber snd Alfred’s are often recommended. There are ongoing threads for each in the ABF forum.

You will also never get individual instruction for issues that you are having, not will you get feedback for your own playing. You can still have fun and enjoy the process and what you are able to play will change.

For whatever reason, the Op has stated he cannot get a teacher now. Therefore, decent alternatives should be offered.

dogperson, I am sorry if my posts have offended you.

For alternatives to the OP I still hold with "have fun and enjoy the process" whatever you do.
Here are a few other alternatives in no particular order but edited for decency so as not to offend.
Try playing from the books you have.
Try playing from other sources.
Watch videos
Read forums
As bennevis suggested, play scales and arps.
Write original music. Create your own method.
Take a look at the Adult Beginners Forum here at Piano World.
If you can't accomplish what you want with what you have, do something else.
Get a puppy.
