Written, can be updated easier. Is easier for non-english/esl speakers. And i don't have to skip through a video searching for that one line of code i need. Also, you can copy/paste from a written tutorial.

video by far. Like Tonnie if I can watch someone do something a few times I tend to remember it. Likewise, just watching people use programs tends to learning new tricks and generally makes you more familiar.

For visual stuff, Max/PS, you cant beat video imo......

Hmm, tough question.

Generally, I prefer written ones. Mainly for reasons said by others: You can follow it in your own pace and you understand mostly what it says.
BUT, one thing I keep seeing in tutorials is that the teacher mainly points out "to get this do this and this" meaning you can basically only apply what you've learned to one thing without really understand what you've done.
In comparison to that: if the teacher explains every setting, how it works, what the result end up like when you do this instead of that and why the result end up as it does, the tutorial can be like a goldmine.
And I don't know really. For some reason, it's seems that if it's a video tutorial, this comes quite naturally.

So if the tutorial is really descriptive and explanatory etc., I'd say that it imo doesn't quite matter whether it's a video or text tutorial. But because of reasons stated I vote for the text/picture based one.

As Badmojo and Wilkinson said, it's easier for those which don't understand very well spoken English to have written tutorials.
But well, I trust Rhino, his accent can't be worst than American one.

@ChizNizzle : why this French sentence on your sig ? I don't understand it , the good translation of project is "projet"
