Videos for the 97.4% is a place for users to post YouTube, Vimeo, LiveLeak, Newgrounds and any other video/flash hosting website to share with users. It is common for members to advertise their own videos for criticism or entertainment. This section is intended for SFW conditions only, meaning anything NSFW cannot be posted.

Back when the section was first created, it was known as Videos and Flash Movies and That Kind Of Crap, with the section description of "For videos, flash movies and other dumb crap that clogs up the other forums. Use media tags." due to the popularity of Flash-based content at the time. When the section made the jump to Newpunch, it received an update, becoming merely Videos and That Kind Of Crap.

In October 2018, as a result of the 2018 forum section reshuffle‎, VaTKOC found itself absorbed into General, a change which brought with it an extreme amount of backlash. For the following months, among the highest requested changes was the return of the video section, due to those threads choking out the other content available in General. It wouldn't be until the results of the 2019 Facepunch Census, organized by Hezzy, on the 25th of February, 2019, that the section was revived after, out of 649 responses, 97.4% voted yes for its re-institution.[1] Appropriately, that percentage was used for the name of the reborn section.
