I think it's best to tell your parents and come out with it, so they don't go on in life thinking you're straight then bitching when they find out their kid likes both sexes and maybe is with the one that isn't exactly great at having kids.
To be honest, I think the Youtube videos thing has a point many people overlook. You may see it as dumb and trying to make your sexuality everyones business. I see it as a way to really get it out there and prove to people that you're gay/bi/lesbian, proud, it exists, and you're coming out with it. Don't like it? Well don't look up coming out videos and bitch about it there.
So I don't mind either and applaud those who tell it and don't give a fuck, like I don't give a fuck either and tell those who matter. But telling family is important so they don't get the wrong idea and get real angry when they find out years later. Also it's like a weight off your shoulders, being able to finally say it and know that they know and are, hopefully, fine with it or at least not openly angry. You can finally say you like both sexes, be yourself, and be happier than before when you were hiding it and a part of yourself.
And I tried several times to explain this, but for some reason straight people seem to not get this concept.1

No, I don't think it's stupid.
Whether or not it's a big deal depends on how your family, friends, etc. would react. Some people would react poorly, whereas other people wouldn't care. And sometimes you don't know for sure how they would react, so it can still be pretty nerve-wrecking to do even if you think they'll probably be accepting.1
