    Just wanted to post this before I went to bed. What would make you want to watch my video tutorials, as opposed to someone elses? I'm looking for suggestions before I begin creating a website for my PHP tutorials. If it's a success, I'll move onto other things outside of programming (E-Whoring, CPA, etc). Must my voice be tolerable? Should the quality be very high? Does it have to be scripted? Long videos or short ones?

    I haven't created any videos yet, I just wanted to get an idea of what I should be doing. There has to be something I can add to it, otherwise it's just another boring PHP video tutorial you can find on YouTube, with the exception of "BlackHat" thrown in the title.

    Personally, I don't watch video tutorials, as I can't quickly skim through them while implementing or use them as reference material. However, if I were looking for a PHP video tutorial, I would want something to the point, as short and concise as possible, with a descriptive title.

    Hope it helps.

    If you really want them watched, put a high price tag on your launch, have it stolen and shared here and other places. :)

    Seriously, think about what I just said.

    Even on some people's hard drive, they will never be watched.

    That isn't a bad idea actually. I like the way you think.

    Create a high-quality video and then post a link to it on forums in your particular niche.
