Sorry to hear about your health.

Similar feeling as Roberthh, good documentation and up to date written tutorials to me are more important. They are easy to update small changes, searchable, more version-able and overall much more concise. That being said, I like watching "overview" videos, which adafruit does well, for features and functionality. I use them often to see what I need to dig deeper into documentation to learn about.

I do like the idea of referencing third-party videos and tutorials more clearly somewhere. As long as they are dated and ideally have firmware versions associated. I think the community is a good resource for videos and maybe doing some sort of bounty or reward system for people doing nice videos and tutorials.

Short answer, I feel the focus should be on code and detailed written documentation.

Cut the videos, your time is better spent elsewhere.

I'm a backer of the KickStarter project... it has turned out to be even more awesome than I ever imagined! Congratulations and Thank You!!

As for the stretch goal tutorial videos: not at all important. I think your proposed "exchange" is fair (and in fact, not even really needed). I completely agree with "let these guys do what they can do the best - write code"

Really the most important thing is to take care of yourself. Wishing you the best.
