I do not agree on that point.
Myself and a lot of my friends use text documentation way more than videos.

Maybe you see more video documentation because you work in visual
stuff/3D. Graphical artists are more incline to use visual documentation
as video.

But in general, most of the people I know check a video to get a global
view of something then use textual documentation when they really want
to learn. And I think this is better to learn because you can go with
your own rhythm. But with a video it's harder. The rhythm is imposed.
