Chris, you are trying to convince the OP that videos are a bad way to 
learn, after the OP has told you that it is his part of his preferred 
way to learn.  Seriously? Do you really think you know what is best for 
everyone?  Different people learn in different ways, and there could be 
a large generational component at work here.

It's clear that you prefer text content to video content.  I do too. 
Lots of people do.  But videos are popular also.

Can't we just stick to trying to help people with Python, and let them 
make other decisions for themselves?
