Video Clips of Techniques Suggestion

Is is possable to have a section devoted to presenting short video clips of people's techniques?

Members can upload clips of how they do what to show others how to do it - or to request suggestions of how to do this better?

as bandwith may be a concern - maybe a section with links to there the actual clip resides?

Watching the Daewoo clip i realized i probably am not accelorating as efficiently as i could. but i had no way to know until i saw it.

Has anyone made clips of there technique for review / commetns?

Steve

I like your idea of more videos. One mans slow is another mans flooring it. You can only learn so much by reading rather then seeing.

If anything you could post the videos on YouTube and embed them here somewhere. That would also get the word out to others that may not know about these tricks (random YouTube surfers).
