To answer your questions (briefly)

A: Given by John Shaw in "Playing 1.e4: Caro-Kann, 1. ..e5 & Minor Lines"

Video 8: 1.e4 g6 2.d4 Bg7 3.Nf3 d6 4.Bc4 Nf6 5.Qe2 0-0 6.e5

6...de5 7 de5  Nd5 8 h3 Be6 etc


B: Given by Alexei Kornev in "The King´s Fianchetto Defences, White Repertoire with 1.d4 and 2.c4 - Vol 2" via a different move order
Video 10: 1.e4 g6 2.d4 Bg7 3.Nc3 c6 4.h3 d6 5.f4 Nf6 6.Nf3 0-0 7.Be3 0-0 8.a3

Black avoids this by 5...e5 6 de5 Qh4

I have watched a few clips and have found them to be interesting. I had a quick look at 3 Nc3 c6 4 f4 which I suspect will be critical and play can become very sharp. 

One advantage of these lines is that few opponents will be booked up on these lines. One could use these ideas alongside more conventional Pirc lines

I think Marin did some old CBM articles covering some of these Caro/Pirc lines. Anyone seen these articles?

I wonder what he recommends against the following lines:

A: Given by John Shaw in "Playing 1.e4: Caro-Kann, 1. ..e5 & Minor Lines"
Video 8: 1.e4 g6 2.d4 Bg7 3.Nf3 d6 4.Bc4 Nf6 5.Qe2 0-0 6.e5

B: Given by Alexei Kornev in "The King´s Fianchetto Defences, White Repertoire with 1.d4 and 2.c4 - Vol 2" via a different move order
Video 10: 1.e4 g6 2.d4 Bg7 3.Nc3 c6 4.h3 d6 5.f4 Nf6 6.Nf3 0-0 7.Be3 0-0 8.a3

Especially line B makes me skip the move-order 1…g6/2...Bg7/ 3...d6/ 4…c6. The whole idea with a2-a3 to stop …b5-b4 isn´t mentioned e.g. by Viktor Moskalenko in "The Perfect Pirc-Modern". I analyzed it and it is annoying because White simply follows up with Bd3/0-0 and f4-f5. Black´s counterplay on the queenside seems to be too slow.

08: 2.d4 Bg7 3.Nf3 d6 4.Bc4 Nf6 5.Qe2/Nc3/e5
09: 2.d4 Bg7 3.Nf3 d6 4.c3 Nf6 5.Bd3/Nbd2

13: 2.d4 Bg7 3.Nc3 c6 4.h4/g3/Bf4
14: 2.d4 Bg7 3.Nc3 c6 4.Nf3 d6 5.Be3/a4
15: 2.d4 Bg7 3.Nc3 c6 4.Nf3 d6 5.Bc4 Nf6  6.Bb3/e5/a4/0-0
16: 2.d4 Bg7 3.Nc3 c6 4.Nf3 d6 5.Bg5 Qb6 6.Rb1/Qd2
17: 2.d4 Bg7 3.Nc3 c6 4.Nf3 d6 5.Be2 Nf6 6.0-0 0-0 7.Bf4 Nbd7 8.a4/Qd2/h3/Re1
18: 2.d4 Bg7 3.Nc3 c6 4.Nf3 d6 5.h3 Nf6 6.a4 0-0 7.Be3 d5 8.e5/Bd3
19: 2.d4 Bg7 3.Nc3 c6 4.f4 d5 5.e5 Nh6 6.Be2/Nf3/Bd3/Be3/h3
20: 2.d4 Bg7 3.Nc3 c6 4.Nf3 d6 5.Be2 Nf6 6.0-0 0-0 7.a4 Nbd7 8.Be3/a5/e5/Re1
21: 2.d4 Bg7 3.Nc3 c6 4.Nf3 d6 5.Be2 Nf6 6.0-0 0-0 7.h3 Nbd7 8.e5/Re1


Somehow I always thought the following line was dubious for Black: 19: 2.d4 Bg7 3.Nc3 c6 4.f4 d5 5.e5 Nh6 6.Be2/Nf3/Bd3/Be3/h3. Also I wonder why Bologan rejected the very interesting 4...Qb6!? as often played by his countryman Svetushkin, I think this could possibly be Black's best try here.

Very interesting DVD indeed judging by the table of contents.

Those who want to go by my perverse footsteps play such pawn structure with fuzzy atypical still strategic orientations

21: 2.d4 Bg7 3.Nc3 c6 4.Nf3 d6 5.Be2 Nf6 6.0-0 0-0 7.h3 Nbd7 8.e5/Re1

Interesting strategic repertoire that avoids the most dangerous for Black lines in the normal Pirc, I guess.
