Yet Another How-To Video Site:

I don’t mean to sound jaded — I’m just amazed at how many of these sites have popped up in the last few months. WonderHowTo, available at has already indexed over 90,000 video clips, so at least they’re starting with a pretty good collection.

And I must say, the front page grabbed me with several odd clips. The columns on the front page include the latest additions, hottest videos, and the hidden gems. I spotted “How To Make double cheddar horseradish mashed potatoes”, “How To Care for a child with autism”, and “How To Mod a slim PS2”.

It doesn’t appear that hosts any videos. Instead when you click on a screenshot or title, you get a detail page that provides details on the video, rankings (A to F), a space for comments (I didn’t see any videos with comments) and related videos. Most importantly, you also get a link to the video on an external site (I saw YouTube, BrightCove,,, and a lot more.)

If you don’t care to look at the hot/recent/hidden stuff on the front page, you also have the option of browsing an incredibly-detailed category index (DO NOT MISS the *5* macrame videos!) or searching by keyword. Searching for cheese found 340 videos, including instructions on selecting cheese for a platter, making raw vegan cheese from nuts, and several variations on mac n’ cheese.

Playing with this site, I found a number of nice design touches, including tracking of your recent searches, recent community searches, and popular community searches (as you imagine not all of these are family-friendly.) I was surprised that there didn’t appear to be RSS feeds available for search results.
