Alright, we've gone through a lot of basic Vim stuff at this point and it's now time to show you how to use Vim's help system effectively. After this video you should be able to hyperlink through the documentation, look up what you need to and search what you need to look for as well. These are key features that let you kick your Vim knowledge into *high gear*!
This video was made BoinxTV (http://www.boinxtv.com)
In this video we cover how to work with windows! Some people have really been waiting for this and it's been a long time coming, I know. This is the last major piece of information you need in order to be able to work with many files in Vim. Windows give you a viewport on to your buffers and now that you've got a lot of buffers loaded, you're going to want to see more than one at a time.
Head to http://derekwyatt.org to make some comments if you'd like and check out some of the other videos in the different categories. There are also some pointers to some keyboard mappings you can use to make things a bit easier for working with many windows (at least they make it easier for me, anyway) at http://www.derekwyatt.org/vim/vim-tutorial-videos/vim-novice-tutorial-videos/
We're moving ahead with our study of working with many files. We're going to cover the args list, the buffer list, how to sequentially move forward through both and a ridiculously powerful command known as :bufdo.

(This has been fixed. The audio should now be good!)
We're going to start filling in a gaping whole in the videos thus far: Working with Many Files. This is going to be the absolute basic methods for working with multiple files in one of Vim's most important concept - buffers.
Please visit http://derekwyatt.org to see a better organization of these videos and to make some comments. I'm trying to make that site more of the "go to" spot for these things. Vimeo is a fantastic site, but it's not great at organizing things or managing all of the other information I think we want to cover with Vim.
In this episode we cover yanking, putting, joining and visual mode.
Head over to http://derekwyatt.org/vim/vim-tutorial-videos/vim-novice-tutorial-videos/ for some more videos, as well as an in-text recap of this video and some decent organization. Please make comments at derekwyatt.org if possible since that's much easier for me to follow!
