I am an expert, and the EVA video looks fine to me. The "air bubbles" are the normal bits of debris that accompany practically any extravehicular operation in space. They're the same bits of insulation, packaging, paper, and occassionally ice that are mistaken for "UFOs" in space video. They're perfectly normal. The little flag they're waving is clearly NOT in a liquid. Yes, there are some other irregularities in the unimportant parts of the Chinese coverage, such as cutting to wide views of the control center where the people are suddenly wearing different color uniforms. But that's fairly innocent. They're likely just trying to pad the coverage with stock footage. Western TV does that too. Russia's first space walk was 10 minutes long. America's first space walk was 20 minutes long. China's 15 minute first space walk is about right. That's all it takes to see whether your space suits work.
There is something wrong with the background and the Perfected look of Clarity

Perhaps some slight static charge is involved with the helmet.

The link is working fine for me. Take a close look at around 1:05, you can see the bubble appearing from under the astronaut's visor and float upwards.

The 1:06 one does look like a bubble, but go to the 2:33 one and look at the trajectory. Now right after that, maybe a second later, there is another, smaller one that flies off in a very different trajectory. Unless they significantly rotated the entire rig within a second, then the bubbles would float to the surface in the exact same or very similar direction. The trajectories are too far off to be bubbles under water. One appears to travel on a heading of about 315 degrees and the second seems to be about 340 degrees. That would require the entire rig to be significantly rotated in only a second...
Sorry folks, but this is the real deal.
