I must agree here. I'll add that the vast majority of video tutorials or
lectures that I've seen are way too slow to hold my interest, with the
exception of google tech talks, and stuff like OCW from MIT. (These are at
http://research.google.com/video.html and
http://ocw.mit.edu/OcwWeb/web/home/home/index.htm respectively).

However, I do really like the idea of showmedo, especially for people who
like learning through not-so-dense video on the introductory level. I
haven't been incredibly impressed with the quality of the free stuff there
either, but I also haven't looked at any of the paid stuff. I don't think
that it's safe to assume that it's of a substantially higher quality.
