As many others have already said, there are millions of FREE training videos. There is no need to pay any money when you are a beginner.
There are also some FREE http://www.cardschat.com/f57/polished-poker-vol-i-free-poker-224449/ for details about how to get it.
In my opinion you should use any resource that is available to you. Don't just stick to books or just videos.
The biggest problem I find is one of the style of the presenter or author. Someone suggested to me that I should read the books by David Sklansky and there is no doubt that he is one of the foremost experts on poker, the problem is that I find his books difficult to read. I have to read each part 3, 4 or more times to really get what he is on about. Not that rereading is a bad thing but I just find his style difficult. It may be that you would not have that problem
The same sort of thing is true of online videos. Some of them are easier to learn from than others. For example, there is a series of videos on YouTube by 'gripsed' I like them a lot but my friend cannot get past the presenters mannerisms to concentrate on the content.
Different strokes for different folks.
For videos the solution is to 'suck it and see'. Take a look at all the suggestions in this thread, or search for 'holdem training videos', and when you find one where you like the presenter and feel that it is teaching you something view them all.
Books are a little more difficult since the majority are not free but if you go to Amazon (or another online retailer) and search for 'holdem books' you will find that many of them have what Amazon call 'look inside' where you can read a small part of the book. That way you can at least find out if you like the way the author writes.
