No, they don't.
Don't fall into the hole of thinking that your opinion (And this is an opinion) is the absolute truth and only way.
People will learn how they will learn and your preferences make no difference to anyone else. If someone wants to learn exclusively from videos, that's just fine.
Yes people learning from just video is fine. It leaves the really good stuff that is in books only to those of use who love out books. Magic was around for thousands of years before there was video and people learned the craft. Videos are just the easy way. Soon those who do love the art and want to branch out from the few card trick that are on video, then they will dive into books.
It seems like videos are the same as the old 50 tricks for a dollar booklets in the back of comic books, just flashier and better effects.
