Alragith back to the most helpful video on the internet, mostly because it is accessible to the general public. And talking about accesible thanks to Neverhundred here's an useful link with a list fallacies: http://www.informationisbeautiful.net/visualizations/rhetological-fallacies/
And here are the individual videos for easy use:
This one is actually a mixture of appealing to an inappropriate authority (someone has authority but in the wrong field), and inversed Authority Fallacy (what someone said is disregarded because that person has no authority, even if what it said was true, like for example it has the research at hand, even if the person itself was not involved in the research), now the actual Authority Fallacy: is saying that something is true because this person of authority in the actual field says so.
Now if you somehow ignore all he said just because of the end when he talks about gamergate, then that is an Ad Hominem Fallacy, as for the guy himself he is indulging in a fallacy of composition, he generalises a whole movement because parts of it (regardless of how big they may be) are toxic: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fallacy_of_composition. , however that doesn't means that he is against the ideals that gamergate protest against, like transparency on journalism or ending sexism, assuming that would be a Black & White fallacy.
I will update this post if more videos are made, like one for composition.
