The MSDN documentation tough to understand.

Are there any online tutorials available to learn SQL Profiler? If possible, videos or simple blog posts would be preferred.

Try this free book from redgate: http://www.sqlservercentral.com/blogs/aloha_dba/archive/2009/01/21/mastering-sql-server-profiler-e-book-available-for-free.aspx

I'm adding here a great series from SQL Server Central, Stairway to Server side tracing, which is treating not only Profiler, but also server side tracing. I'm sure you'll love it's detail. It's treating most cases you'd need regarding the action of profiling a server.
