I do not deal much with YouTube or any of the "social networks" like
Facebook and Twitter, but many do.
I do go to this YouTube page
and it is much better than LO's page.
It is well organized for their type of videos so it can be done.
If someone would take the time and organized LO's videos enough to be
placed on a well made "official channel", then it would go a long way
towards giving LO users and potential users a good place to find the
videos they need.

Several people have expressed interest through the Docs list about
creating how-to videos, and we definitely need them, but I agree we
also need some "professional" introductory videos. Drew Jensen has
done some good stuff; I'm not sure it's what you have in mind, but
it's well done.

Well, I just wanted to add that when I searched for "about LibreOffice", the
first video shown was dated May 2011 and was not "professional". Most of
the rest was about a feature or how to do something.
SO, if we wanted to present a "professional" video to potential users that
tells them about LO and why they should try it, the video searching from
that LO channel page does not cut it.

I would like to see a set of pages organized by language, AND by topic.
If the page could be organized with topics like
Why should you install it
How to install it
How to do such and such
and any other topic that could use a category listing.
I have seen some good "official pages" out there with the videos sorted in
a way that makes it easy for a person find what they want by looking at the
category and the text blurb on what the video was about.
Maybe someone could look into doing this. IT would be a major project to
do this, but it is something that would really help the marketing AND help
people easily find a "help video" within the current "1021" videos that the
page lists are in the LO channel.
