The most important thing to remember about videos is that you should know the teacher's qualifications. Just as in live instructors, each video instructor is unique.
If possible, view a video before you buy it. There are many good, inexpensive videos available. You should be able to find one that suits your style and ability.
My personal preference is to use videos to supplement a live practice. But many are also suitable for a beginner who cannot find a local class.
