    This is a cool idea but since you already made the pics for the video why don't you add a step by step (not video) onto it too. Because... At least for me. I like to glance over it before I read it in detail and videos don't let me do that. So I just pass them over. And a great instructible like this I don't think a great idea like this should go to waste with people who just glance over them to just skip this instructible.

    I totally agree. I HATE video instructions, and I know a lot of people agree with me. I was really interested in this instructable because I already have a broken light up dog collar. Please consider adding individual pictures, in this and future instructables. We don't all learn the same way.

    : ) Hmmm. I use youtube as the medium, initially, then it is very easy for me to just embed the video, and maybe write down the materials list on Instructables. I will take your suggestion, though, and force myself to do some Instructables-specific projects, without putting them on youtube, just to do something that I haven't done, yet. Thanks!!

    I think that the videos are great but with an instructable too. It's like a bonus so when you are serious about a project that you want to build, then you can watch the video to understand the project better.
