I have never understood the craze for video editorials. A well written editorial is without any doubt better than a video editorial. From the editorialist’s side, making a video editorial is much more time-consuming than a written editorial. From a learner’s side,
- I can read any written editorial 3 times by the time I will finish watching the video editorial.
- I can jump between parts of a written editorial much more easily than in a video editorial.
- When implementing the solution, I can keep the written editorial open next to my code and easily follow it. It is much more cumbersome to pause and play again and again with a video editorial.
- A written editorial requires less memory, so it is easily accessible and portable compared to a video editorial.
I, for one, do not see the need to have official video editorials. Of course, you might disagree with me
EDIT: Also found a related thread here from March. @gkcs mentions 2 reasons why CodeChef does not have official video editorials.
