Definitely a good idea. I can imagine a video where you start the
upgrade process, have a sip of coffee, look back at the monitor and the
ugprade is done.

Anyone it'd be great to have a video about news in Fedora 25. GNOME has
been doing them for some time and they're pretty popular: https://www.y (they usually get up to 135k views on
Youtube, that's a great number). Such videos can also be used at Fedora
booths played in loops.

Someone did this for F22:
and it got 55k views even though it was not an official video.

Generally I think we should expand more into video. I know it's usually
more consuming than static graphics, but it gets attention. And
sometimes it's not even that difficult. For example, we did a video
that showed what people can find at the Fedora booth at LinuxDays. I
just grabbed a phone and the video was done and uploaded within 10
minutes and it was played by hundreds of ppl.


P.S. my upgrade to F25 took 15 minutes in total, pretty awesome :)
