Xcode codesign failed with exit code 1; expired certificates

I’ve been getting a lot of comments about how to fix the Xcode codesign failed with exit code 1; expired certificates causing ambiguous matches. This problem is such a time sink that I suspect it really helps to have someone explain the simple solution for resolving it.

To make it easier for those who’d rather hear how to solve it, I made a short video explaining the solution.

I appreciate the feedback and I’m glad to help.

And thanks to everyone who’s helped me.
