Didn't Shizuko, her mom, record that video with her camera eyes?
I never really understood that bit but in the Japanese one which is the only one I have seen, it was a big deal that she recorded herself in the mirror with no camera visible.
It's a trap!

She used her mind to etch shit into the film roll. Classic parlor trick.

Shit was too profitable. That's the problem. Ringu works if you don't overexplain it. If you pump out half a dozen of sequels, you have to do the explaining that will ruin it.

It's a bit like Twin Peaks going to shit when the channel demanded the mystery of who the murderer was to be revealed.

There were some weird made-for-TV Ring projects I saw in Japan.

One was called "Ring kanzen-ban", and I think it may have been more like the book. I remember it seemed a lot more explicit than the theatrical film. Sadako had at least one sex scene and it turned out she was intersex.

There was another TV miniseries too, "Ring: The Final Chapter". Both of these shows seem to have been forgotten. I did copy them to VHS, but I always used SLP recording in those days to save shekels. So it probably doesn't look that good even if it did survive all this time.

>recording Ringu on tape

You can probably scam some idiot on eBay with this highly-ironic artifact.

Ah yeah I'm aware of those, hence why I described the film I meant as first successful movie adaptation because even in Japan they didn't care about kanzenban apparently.
So the secret was always to make it less like the novel.
There was a sequel that was like the second novel for instance and people didn't like that too. Other sequels that diverted from the VR Matrix nonsense fared a little better.
And then of course there's the game that Spoony reviewed (Dark tymes gang assemble!) which also seems to be going by the novel first and foremost.
It's a trap!

Did the novel at least explain what "dalad jelly" is?

No, that will forever remain a mystery.
