You reproduced the sample pretty well. Note that the speaker uses a British pronunciation. Americans pronounce it quite differently, as you can hear in the American samples at forvo.

But I could not hear the L sound at all. Am I right?

The first two British pronunciations barely realize the /l/. The third does. I'd use her sample as a guide.

His name is Alexander Bebris and he's from Russia. Many of the words he says sound off; some are completely unrecognizable to me, but then again, I'm just a random Glizdka from the internet. I don't recommend learning pronunciation from him.

In this video, I could not hear a long u in the word.
[STRIKE]The time of[/STRIKE] The word is at 15.15. ("15:15" in American English)
By the way, is he a native speaker?
While I admire his enthusiasm, he should apply it elsewhere. He has a thick Russian accent. His pronunciation of most of the words, including "schedule", is poor.

I would recommend not learning from him. I got a laugh out of his pronunciation of consider, but simply couldn't face any more. He reminds me of that American woman who teaches actors how to speak Cockney.
