And the ones with background music - that I guess they 'think' enhances the videos but almost always is way too loud and can't hear the speaker no matter what type video. I end up usually not watching it with sound on. Just leave the music out for heavens sake (or ours).

I am glad I'm not the only one who does this. I'm a visual learner and don't want to hear someone talking about what to do. My computer is on mute most of the time. The gestures can be hilarious.

Great idea, y'all! Why didn't I think to do this!? Some of the voices drive me crazy also! And repeat and repeat... Ahhgh!

I watched a YouTube on making the Mondo Bag. It was a great help. Without the volume I was able to “see” what was happening. Of course the person was really good and conscientious at “showing” what she was doing. A great reason to turn off the volume is because it is in a language I do not speak, as this one was.

I do this often. Sometimes learn better from just watching, and skipping the verbal instructions. Particularly annoying if the instructor is too perky or a voice thatís hard to listen to.

I am surprised that others watch videos without the sound off -

The main reasons that I have - our computer is int he living room and so is the TV - guess what sound gets listened to? Or I don't want to wake anyone up yet.

I usually have the sound and captions off, I just watch what they're doing. I don't like the captions because most the time some of the words don't come out as to what they're actually saying.
