How do videos save time? I find the opposite. It often takes a long
time to find the bit that I need. Sometimes I sit through the whole
thing only to find it doesn't tell me what I need to know. Once in a
long while a video is helpful for demonstrating a procedure that 's
hard to put into words.
In my experience, when a product's written documentation is useless,
the videos are usually witless time-wasters as well.
