Ever wondered why some people can be so smart in doing everything? No matter what they do, they seem to have an easier way of doing it rather than us struggling to get it right. I personally believe that most of the time there is an easier and faster way of doing something and thanks to the Internet, we can simply do a search in a search engine such as Google to look for the useful tips and tricks. You will probably end up with search results pointing you to the site containing the DIY tips but most of them are in written text with photos which could be hard to learn either due to the author not explaining the steps correctly or the reader doesn’t have a strong understanding of the written text.
The best and fastest way to learn about doing something is definitely through viewing an instructional video demonstration where you can easily spot the mistake that you previously made. Here are a list of How-To Video websites that you can view for free which contains thousands of interesting and weird videos such as “How To Fold A T-Shirt In 2 Seconds”, “How To Undo Her Bra With One Hand” and etc… It has videos on every category you can think of.
Notes about VideoJug: Still one of the best looking howto video website with over 60,000 professionally produced videos. Used to allow downloading of the videos by signing up but this is no longer possible because they’ve disabled it. VideoJug allows sharing and embedding of the videos.
Notes about SuTree: There are currently over 80,000 lessons in SuTree. SuTree does not host the videos on their website and is an online aggregator of video tutorials from various video hosting websites such as YouTube, metacafe and etc.
Notes about 5min: The reason this website is called 5min because of a very simple one: any solution can be visually explained in no more than 5 minutes. None of the tutorial videos at this website is longer than 5 minutes. To view the videos, you need to have the latest version of Adobe Flash player.
Notes about About.com videos: A lot of high quality videos. You can’t download the videos and also they don’t provide the URL for you to share or embed the video to your website. You can only browse through the videos from the categories because the search bar at the top of the page searches the whole site instead of the video subdomain.
Notes about Howcast: Howcast was launched on February 2008. You can search or browse through the category. Allows embedding to your website by clicking the Embed Video link to get the code.
6. Monkey See
Notes about MonkeySee: Able to search and browse through categories. Allows embedding and also clicking on the Related bar at the top right of the video will instantly display any videos that are related to the one that you’re currently viewing.
Notes about YouTube: YouTube probably contains the most videos if compared to other video websites. Although it is not a specific how-to video site, you can still find a lot of instructional and tutorial videos by using the search. There is a Howto & Style category if you would like to browse through. Allow embedding of their videos.
There you have it, 7 websites that you can search and view how-to videos to get good at life. Unfortunately none of the video websites above allows you to download the videos for offline viewing.
