This is a video demonstrating how to employ the "Over/Under" cable wrapping technique, which the poster, Randy Coppinger, says helps reduce tangle, prolongs the cable's life, and is accepted best practice for media production professionals.
Here is what else they say about the video by Scott Reynolds: 

If you are involved in media production of any kind - music, film, television, video games, podcasts, online, radio, etc. - then you probably use mic cables and/or line level cables to for interconnections. This video is designed to demonstrate clearly and concisely how to coil up your cables using the Over Under technique when you need to store them. I believe this is an essential skill for amateurs and professionals alike.
