This idea came up in the discussion area of the Woodworking Community (now in the commitment phase). I suggested that we shoot some sample video answers as a way to get some exposure for the community and start building a precedent for video answers in general. As you can imagine with something like woodworking, a visual demonstration is sometimes the only way to illustrate concepts effectively.
But it brings up a bit of a dilemma: publicly posting a video in this way, for better or worse, makes me a representative of Stack Exchange, and I'm guessing I don't have that authority. Has this come up before and if so how was it handled?
Does Stack Exchange have the architecture to handle posting videos directly?
