Good. Also remember that dorsiflexing your ankle (tilting it towards the knee, as the video showed) with your knee flexed / bent will just stretch the soleus muscle. If you want to stretch the gastrocnemius muscle, you must keep your knee straight while tilting your ankle.

Although this may effectively stretch the calf muscles, for the plantar fascia, you still also need to dorsiflex your toes (bend them towards the knee) to effectively stretch it, along with other tissue mobilization techniques.
