Is it common to pronounce two /tjuː/? says

The word "two" in a tutorial sounds like /tjuː/ at multiple positions.

By "at multiple positions" I mean that, the speaker pronounces that way at 1:09, and pronounces that way again at 2:23, and so on.

Is it clear it and grammatically correct to use "at multiple positions" to convey that idea?

It is unambiguous what the sentence means, so in that sense it's clear.

There are several words you could use to express this, though I don't think any is obviously dominant. "Positions" or "points" are probably the cleanest with this particular formation.

Alternatively, you could also say "[At several places/Several times] in the video/tutorial, the word 'two' sounds like /tjuː/", which is a little more colloquial.
