"11s by Sepehr" video:
scramble: F2 L' B2 F2 R' F2 L F2 D R2 U' L2 D' B R D2 U2 B D'
inspection: z y

"13.01 by MQ" video:
scramble: D R2 F2 D L2 F U' B' R' D' U2 R F U2 B' D B'
double xcross: L R' U' y r U2 x' y
F2L3: U' R L' U R' L
F2L4: U' R U R' U2' R U R' U' R U R'
OLL: U2 y' z U D' x U2 R U2 R' U' R U' R' z' y R' x' r
PLL: U' L x' D' L U2 L' D L U2 L2

I'm a little suspicious about the 13.01, because such a fast double xcross is very lucky, and there is also very little pause before F2L3 and PLL. It could still be real though.

Yohei Oka's pyraminx WR single (1.93):
scramble: B' R B R' U' l' r'
tripod: oL R
L3E: oL' l U' l' oF' F

(EDIT: fixed, added the r tip.)

Piotr Tomczyk's OH WR single (10.68), from here and cleaned up a bit:
scramble: R U2 R D2 L2 U2 L' D2 F2 D F L R' B' U2 F D' B R U' L
inspection: y' z
xcross: U' x U' R x' z2 U2' R U

1st scramble from ilikecubing's video:
scramble: U2 R F B2 D2 B2 U' B R U' D L U L F' U L R2 U2 B' L D' F' D U
cross: U' D R' F R U L y R' U2 R'
F2L1: U2' L' U L U' L' U L U' L' U L
F2L2: U U' R U' R'
F2L3: L U' L'
F2L4: U2 U' f R f'
OLL: U2 R U R' U' R' F R F'
PLL: y2 R U R' U' R' F R2 U' R' U' R U R' F'

The scramble was R2 U L2 F2 D' B2 D' R2 U B2 U B' U F U F' U L' U2 R'. I do the white cross and the first pair is the blue-orange. Sorry for the bad angle of the camera...

57htm / 4.07 tps

Nice solve! Some cool things (not being critical):
After the cross you have the YBR 1x2x2 made, which is preserved during the 1st 2 pairs.
So you could have switched to blue:
U2 z // 3rd pair
U' R U R' U' R U R' // 4th pair
U2 R U R' U R U2 R' // OLL
Tperm U' // PLL

Also, if you had done OLL from the back you would skip PLL:
(U') R' U2 R2 U R2' U R2 U2 R' (U)

2nd scramble from tx789's video, which I gave up on for a while because it was tough to keep track of:
scramble: L2 R2 F2 R U2 L D' U' F D F2 U R D' L' R2 U' F2 L
inspection: x2
most of the cross: D' L
F2L1: y R U' R'
F2L2: y' y L' U L y' R U' R' d R' U2 R U2' R' U R
F2L3: U' y' R U R' U' R U2' R' U y' R' U R
finish cross: U' M' U2 M
F2L4: y2 U2 F' U' F U2 R U2 R' U y' R' U R
edge OLL: F R U R' U' F'
corner OLL: l' U R D' R' U' R D x'
PLL: skip

I'm fairly sure this is correct. It was hard to see, I kept on wanting you to move your hand out of the way!

You're welcome. :tu Reconstructions can be fun to do and they can teach you tricks that other solvers use.

OLL 22 "Bruno" can be performed starting with R or R':

R U2 R2' U' R2 U' R2' U2 R
R' U2 R2 U R2' U R2 U2 R'

As both algorithms are <R,U> the corner permutation is preserved. Each algorithm causes an edge 3 cycle (Uperm), one CW the other CCW. This difference is why you could have skipped PLL.

etc. It doesn't matter much which solves, and I care more about F2L. I'm hoping to pick up tricks to put together a COL version of my Advanced F2L section.

10.25 (fourth solve)
too much blockage for F2L
OLL: U2' R U R' y R' F R U' R' F' R
PLL: U2' F R U' R' U' R U R' F' R U R' U' R' F R F' U'

I'm not 100% sure on these two reconstructions. In general they are correct; however some x/x' rotations could be (R l) combos, as well as some other idiosyncrasies.
