STOP posting videos - write text instead!
I'm interested in fringe stuff and conspiracy theories, but I find it frustrating having to waste time watching videos when I could be speed-reading text, instead.

If you have something to tell people, isn't it better to post it as text instead posting it as a "talking head" video filled with (often) disorganized talk, unnecessary video effects and music? Some videos are, in fact, nothing but crappy special effects, music and scrolling text. Why bother with a video at all?

Text is easy to skim through and see if it's at all interesting. With a video, you'll end up skipping back and forth trying to find the interesting bits buried in a boring "talking head" show.

And believe me, I haven't seen a single photogenic person in such a video!

+1 to that. I usually close a windows even if the topic sounded interesting, if it's a video. I'd much rather read the information than be stuck watching, unless there is something important to convey that simply doesn't lend itself to text very well.

Re: STOP posting videos - write text instead!
I'm with you OP. To many videos......At least put an explanation with the video, for those of us who don't have the time or desire to watch them.
Music videos are the worst. What you see and hear in it, may not be what others do......Explain how it makes you feel.
I do appreciate when some one gives a time of where the action is, so we don't have to watch three minutes of video to see something that occurs in the last thirty seconds.

Me too.

Watching a webcam recording of some guy talking to the camera is useless. You can't do it at work and the presentation is more than often just too disorganized for you to get anything solid out of it. To make matters worse, the proof that videos claim to provide often comes without any references (books, articles, news, interviews,...), and if there are references, they tend to lead to another video of a guy talking and not providing reliable references.

This would also deter the professional shills who just drop a Ctrl-V or two, often with half dozen different ones posting the same video each day.

Since you probably know the difference between videos and text, maybe don't click on videos.

actually, if wewere a caring/thoughtful forum we would do both, because people with dial-up cannot, actually, even watch the video's.

Videos like this cannot be talked out, theyare a dramatization (a show, and meant to be a show):

Sometimes the video gives information that would be difficult to explain via text (aka a graph, photo or chart), helps set the mood for the post, or provides an easy way of saying what the person is trying to say with text (like this).

Post the video at the end. After you summarize it. It is presumptuous to just post a video. It's an annoying character fault.

If what you have to post is so important, then explain it first instead of being a lazy asshole and expecting thousands of people to waste time watching a video.

But the main reason peoplemake videos, is because they're easier to repost, they have more potential to go viral than a bunch of text you have to copy-past.
