Dear internet, please stop making videos to tell me things that could be adequately explained in one paragraph of text.

@mike on the one hand, yes, text is way easier to handle for me, too. On the other hand, video is more accessible to other people. So... both, both is good.

@catte @mike These are not mutually exclusive.

How about a video that begins with a summary of actions that will be performed?

Or better still, how about point form instructions in the video's text description?

Or better still, how about an article with text and screenshots (that could be still captures from the video), plus a video at the top/bottom of the article for those who had trouble following along?

@decis @mike totally! The first one still requires one to watch the video, so I prefer the other two as combinations of text and video, and yes, those are wonderful.
