I am neither blind nor deaf, and I hate video reviews, or when people link to a talk on a subject instead of a paper. It is a lot slower listening to someone talk than it is to read, I can't skip around easily, I can't search it, I need to find a pair of headphones so I don't bother anyone who's around me, and I frequently need to enable Flash in order to watch them.
Now, there some cases in which a video is more valuable than a text review; if you're showing off some kind of physical interaction, a video can sometimes get your point across much more easily than a paragraph of text describing what's going on. But on the whole, I'm in favor of keeping more information in a text format; it's more accessible, even to those without any disabilities.
