Well I don't personally care about video editing, and I don't even bother with youtube. The most I ever do is watch some short video clips downloaded from chans, or some old movies I got from archive.org or from demonoid or an FTP site years ago. I use ffplay to watch those on the framebuffer console, since I hardly ever run Xorg. I don't want to edit them or make new videos.
And I don't want to edit images either, unless I'm making a game mod, and there a program like GrafX2 is enough, because I only care about old games that use sprites (basically everything up through Doom/Duke3D/Descent) rather than the 3D polygon stuff that followed.
Really all I need Xorg for is if I want to use a modern web browser (I don't like it, but have to sometimes). I even convert PDFs with pdftotext or pdftoppm, because I have some image viewers that work fine on the tty (fbi and fim). But when I download ebooks, I try to get them in epub format, since it's a simpler format that's often offered as an alternative to PDF. You can "unzip" the epub file and you'll end up with a bunch of xhtml files (and often images files too), and for this I configured my ncurses file manager (Midnight Commander) to use the Lynx browser for the xhtml files, and fim to load images. Or if I hit the "v" (view) key instead of "return/enter" on an xhtml file, it'll page it through "lynx -dump $1 | less" so I can have just the plain text (sometimes that's more comfy to read).
