Video User Manuals

The team at Video User Manuals have been around since early 2008. They are the original and first plugin to put video tutorials in the WordPress dashboard for clients. All the videos use a non-technical language and clear graphics, making them quite easy to understand. The videos can be watched in English (American, British and Australian accents available) or Spanish and they are categorized into the following sections:

Section # of Videos Section # of Videos
Dashboard 2 Widgets 1
Editor 11 Menus 3
Images 10 Yoast SEO (a free plugin) 4
Pages 3 WooCommerce (a free plugin) 7
Media 2 WooCommerce Products 7
Posts 7 Google Analytics Setup (not a WordPress feature) 11
Comments 1 Google Analytics Reports 10
Profile 1 Gravity Forms (a paid plugin) 5

The plugin is fully brandable and customizable. It is possible to turn off individual videos or entire sections of videos and add your own videos.

The videos are always opened in a new tab and the user has to come back to the previous tab to have access to the other videos—not very efficient.

It is also provides a Word and PDF document with every subscription that you can customize and rebrand as your own—but it’s not part of the WordPress plugin. And also there is the option to hide the settings from Admins.

Note there is no button to watch the video in full screen mode but if you increase the width of the popup window

There are three plans available:

  • Single: $70.00 (flat rate)
  • Developer: $24.00 per month (First month only $1)
  • Saver: $240.00 per year (First two month free)

WPMU DEV

Founded in 2005, WPMU DEV offers more than 350 WordPress plugins, themes and unlimited support. The WordPress tutorial videos are very detailed and straightforward, with a clean and clear interface, making them suitable for entry level users. The videos available are categorized into the following sections:

Pages 4 Organizing Content 2

This is basically the only page of this plugin. Its interface is more efficient, the list of videos are always displayed below the video that is currently playing and the tutorials are not opened in a new tab.

The only language available is English and there is no written documentation available. All the videos will always be displayed to the admin and they can be watched in full screen mode. Even though the videos do not cover all the content covered by Video User Manuals, they covered most of the content in fewer and more dynamic videos.

There are three plans available:

  • Monthly: $49.50
  • Quarterly: $34.50 per month
  • Yearly: $24.50 per month

WordPress.tv

On WordPress TV you can access screencasts, video presentations and WordCamp videos, and you can post your own videos as well. Their number one objective is to share quality content and show the users how to use WordPress and do awesome things with it.

The website is a moderated community and the videos they publish are for the benefit of all users of WordPress. As such, their content is meant to be a reflection of the values of the WordPress project.

They also have a blog, so the users can keep it up with all the WordPress news and events.

Finally, to choose which is best for your customers, you should know how much they know about WordPress and what are the features they use, because even though Video User Manuals covers extra content like Gravity Forms, WooCommerce and SEO, the videos explain the content more slowly compared to WPMU DEV, but it still explains the content thoroughly.
