Wordless how- to videos. Answered

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=r0oX4I11BMc This is not my video, but I thought it was pretty cool. I really like some of these wordless how to videos. I suppose that it assumes a certain familiarity with the processes from anyone who would do these projects. Yet, if you don't have a familiarity with welding for instance, you probably wouldn't do this project anyway. Any other good videos like this one?

"Any other good videos like this one?"

I struggle with this a lot when making videos, I don't really know who my audience is (other than Males, 20-50 y/o) and what their skill level is. Some advice I've heard is to assume your viewers are intelligent people who don't know much about the subject, but that doesn't help much.
I can see in my analytics when people rewind/skip parts of my videos which helps me learn for future videos, but I never really know. For example, in my video on making a buzzer/horn for a bike: showing video of soldering is very boring, but not explaining each step would mean people wouldn't be able to replicate the project - but if you already know how to solder, you don't need instructions...
