I like the following for in the bag videos:
1. Show the discs being thrown in a field as viewed from a drone above the field.
2. Have some sort of "follow flight" graphic showing the path of the disc.
3. State how far the disc went.
4. State the elevation, wind direction and maybe weather conditions. This is important to me, because I want to know if the results are likely to vary somewhat given where I live.

I voted "other" because I would vote "both". If one can throw them on a course or at a basket on approach shots, that would be great. But if that is not possible, throwing in a field is fine. Marking 200 ft., 300 ft., etc. with bags or visible stakes or baskets is very good if in a field. So I'm good with all of it, and grateful for those making and editing the videos.

My favorite point of view, for ball and disc golf, is an elevated position about 20' behind the tee. Of course, that is not easy to do unless you have a drone or something...

For ITB videos, I think I prefer the open field with discs generally thrown the same direction and flat. This way one gets to see the flight for the thrower (which may be different from the observer, and most definitely is in your case), and also the difference between discs.

Like SD86 said, I am glad people make these videos at all ... especially when you consider the trolls/flamers that inevitably try to piss on someone's parade. I am glad we get anything!
