This video is probably halfway between a category one and category two (according to NeiMo's OP). For me, posting Youtube videos gives me a 'benchmark' by which i can watch my style, technique and flair improve (hopefully) over the years. It's also a great opportunity to receive feedback, and I like the thought of getting exposure and being rewarded by comments and ratings for the hard work i put into music. Getting positive comments really inspires me to work on new songs!
My equipment has come a long way from my first youtube video (an old beat up pearl export kit recorded through the video function of my girlfriends old digital camera!) but the fact remains that we all have to start somewhere. You will have to find a happy compromise between spending thousands of dollars on equipment and spending hours refining recording and playing techniques (like Cobus), and just playing for fun, or to impress friends, or like you suggested, correcting other youtube users.
Ultimately, if you put up a youtube video that further down the track you are not impressed with, you can just remove it. It's not likely anybody will remember the 'not so good' videos. They're more likely to concentrate on your newer and more impressive vids!
Look forward to catching some videos of you online sometime soon!

I like your idea of posting up a video and improving over the positive feedback.. That might be better for me as I don't really like people coming up to me face to face and being like "dude that was amazing.." or whatever.. no idea why, but if it was written down be better.
How did you record that video PsYkeR?
Just slam it all down after pressing record on a camcorder then shove the logic window thing in the top right later on?
Think about it, bro. How else would you record a video?
