So other than searching on Google or YouTube, where do you guys find videos of the conventions that y'all go to?

I'm honestly not really interested in convention videos unless its incorporated with a review by a media source I follow, or my friends or I have been filmed. Given all that, I usually go straight to the source based on the business card or word of mouth I've gotten from whoever created or was in said video. A cosplay videographer shot me and I missed their info, I tend to check out the videos posted by the Cosplay Videographers Facebook page, but I think the medium has a long way to grow so I don't look too hard.

I agree. I absolutely never watch random con videos. If I was in an event or on a panel, I might search for videos of those by keyname, but I will never sit through long videos of random con footage. If it contains a narrative explaining the footage and talking about the con, that's different.

I also never click random links to con videos posted on forums unless they're relevant to a current discussion AND a summary of the video (beyond "check out my Yatta Con video!") is provided and it sounds relevant to my interests.
