    Oh Yes, I think they allow it as when we click on 'start a new hub' the category is: article-video-and so on. I don't remember all...

    The video itself is the article; there's no problem with that.  Adding a few sentences in a text capsule will help the article appear in search engine results though.  It's also nice to provide a summary for people whose devices don't play video very well.

    The site prefers hubs to have at least 500 words (poetry is an exception), but this is an interesting question.  I think Google might downgrade a hub that was just video without words, and apparently, if you include text of whatever is in the video, it raises your rankings on G as well.  But I'm sure no expert!

    Good question! I've been wondering about this myself! ^_^ There are times when the best examples are on video rather than text alone...
