    Don't make it to long.
    Like a second or 2 is long enough.

    I hate it when I see videos with long intro's which add noting to the video >__>

    I would prefer no intro at all to one of those annoying-ass 45-second long intros.

    Seriously, if I see a video with that kind of bullshit, I hit the back button and find another result.

    Eh, usually most intros are clips of gameplay or videos strung together with music. Although many people don't like intros longer than 5 seconds.

    I'd rather have a watermark than any intro that's not a static image for 2 seconds.
    And I hate watermarks.

    Freak Ya! It gets on my nerves when they have long intro's! I usually fast forward, or not watch it at all!

    I hit the back button and never watch it again.

    I don't really mind short intros like the ones on Mindcrack or Far Lands or Bust or from the Yogscast etc.
    Their only a second or so and quickly fade into the gameplay.

    If you stick to such an intro then I have no problem of watching it.
    And I think a lot more won't have a problem with it ;]

    Well, The Channels name is Bulbatortle! ( Wartortle and Bulbasaur) So, I'm coming up with a 3 second intro to it right now!

    I suggest adding a short intro... as long as it's good. I mean, a minute or so, would be the max, but that's depending on the intro itself.

    Personally, I found the length of Two Best Friend's intro to be perfect. It gets me in the mindset that okay, i'm watching one of their videos, but it isn't too long where I say "Fuck it, this is taking too long"

    I'm not too shabby with Cinema 4D and I could make a pretty rad intro. Like a trainer throwing a pokeball towards the screen, it flashes open and it fades into your video. That kind of stuff.

    Short, funny and creative are the best! Especially for video game videos. My all time favourite has to be the GameGrumps intro(s). Short, explanatory and it gives me a giggle every time. The JonTron video is an example of something annoying long...
