Being a historian I used to care little about video analysis. Until last year, when I was faced with a stupendous task. For a birthday I needed to turn dozens of hours of childhood videos into a short compilation. By importing the video files into MAXQDA, tagging the video track and thus segmenting the long video into many smaller clips, I was able to take a serious shortcut. So I finally get my hands on learning some video analysis and it also saved my nerves and improved the results with the power of qualitative data analysis.
