Doing something physical is another matter. If I'm trying to figure out how to do something with tools and parts and there's video of the operation available, I'll watch it several times before I even start on it.

Oh, right, right, right. You're watching the video on how to change the frammis valve, and the video mechanic says, "Now one thing you've got to watch out for is if you have the orange adjustment screw right here. Most of the models were assembled with the green screw, but if you have the orange one, for gosh sake DON'T TOUCH IT or the end of your dipstick will fall off!"

For mechanical stuff I like video, text and drawings. Photos help, too, but a good drawing can show things that are indistinguishable in photos.
