I get more people looking at my ScreenShots page than videos.


I don't know what you've got screenshots/video of, but unless you're showing off some specific animations or trying to show something that a simple 2D-image would have trouble with -- e.g. 4-dimensional structures? -- then it's quite understandable that people steer towards screenshots: they likely already portray 95%+ of the same information as could be gleaned from a video, but with less artifacting and faster loading.

I'm interested in UI-design and I like to pay some attention to the design behind flow of actions and, well, it bothers me horribly when people overuse video.

My product is an operating system. It is misunderstood in countless ways. My web page? I flail around trying to correct this or that misunderstanding. My web page gets long and rambles. Then, I start over and repeat. I find it hopeless. I don't know who I should talk to and which people would be interested and why.

On the otherhand, sometimes, I think my web pages doesn't matter and those who are interested would download it no matter what. Those not interested, won't.

The videos? I have no idea. They can explain some thing well. I don't know which things.

Sometimes, I think I explain too difficult material, when I should keep it simple.

These guys are competitors, but I doubt I lose any customers. http://www.returninfinity.com/ Their site looks much nicer than mine. http://www.templeos.org We have different visions, though, and I generate my site with my own software. My software does a bad job on my front page, but it does an excellent job on all the source code. I want continuity between all my pages.

They have a more well-defined purpose. They are minimal and high performance. I am somewhere in between minimal and maximal.

My code--it's always been there, all 140,000 lines: http://www.templeos.org/Wb/Accts/TS/Wb2/LineCnt.html#l707

These guys seem to think they will have nontechnical users? http://www.returninfinity.com/ I crack-up laughing. Maybe, they think users will install it for the applications? LOL
