I have searched high and low. Are we (at the ONLY people on planet earth that are successfully broadcasting miniature games on the internet? I can find no one else who is recording their games and putting them on Youtube or anywhere else. We seem to be the only people doing this and I find it very hard to believe.

Try Little Wars TV on YouTube. They've been broadcasting for several years.

Are miniatures games a good spectator sport?

I love wargaming but while I don't mind checking out other people's armies and models when they are gaming, I find watching them play a little like watching paint dry.

From the very few I've seen, they would benefit from lots of editing: snipping or fast forwarding past the chit chat and looking up rules and getting to the actual movement and die roll results. But that takes time and some expertise.

There are many channels doing this in the Warhammer space and they been for years. For historicals, there are maybe a dozen channels that have been doing it for several years. In most cases these are unedited--or very lightly edited--game videos, showing most of the gameplay. Little Wars TV is a channel that does a lot of editing to condense a 3-4 hours game down to 15ish minutes.
