I concur, but I think it depends on the subject matter. Watching someone click around and IDE is fairly unhelpful, requiring pausing and rewinding and too much life expenditure. But if my 'learning' involves how to remove the pump from my washing machine, YouTube is absolutely awesome.

They're probably not talking about that though.
Regards,
Rob Philpott.
