I am not claiming for a second that Youtube (etc) are a perfect solution or a ticket to success.

But if you claim "they are not the way to go" it implies that you know of a better alternative. As I said, despite not being perfect, these sites very clearly have some benefits. So. . . what method do you think is better, at the exclusion of Youtube? Come on, spill the beans .
