Conclusion

These are but a few resources where PM-related videos can be found in YouTube. Some channels have too few PM-related videos to be included on the list, like Doodle Slide, while some have a very broad range of content like lynda.com. But because 100 hours of video are uploaded every minute on YouTube, all lists will change eventually, this one included.
