Please. Stop. Showing. That. Video.
Once? Fine. It's cute. AND probably helpful. New users? Visitors/guests? By all means--make their ears bleed.
But if I'm a registered member/user, and logged in as such, doesn't it stand to reason that I've seen it or at least that I'm already hip to the download dynamics? Seriously. It's overkill. And even if you cannot or will not fix this broken record, would you AT LEAST get it the #&@% off of my screen once it runs its noble course. That would be greeaaat. Thaaanks.
