Yes, uncertainty and indeterminacy are used interchangeably in this equation. The reason he often says "indeterminacy" instead of "uncertainty" is because uncertainty makes it sound like we are unsure of whether or not the equation is accurate even though it is. Indeterminacy is a better word because it instead connotes the fact that we know the object is there and that the equation is accurate but are simply unsure/indeterminate of its exact momentum and/or position.
