I'll go out a little further than most and say it will depend on what kind of site you are building and for what audience. Many sites for car companies, musical artists, movie studios, and other flashy industries play movies (including background sound) and users put up with it. But I do emphasize that it's "put up with" more often than "looked forward to." And boy, BMW or MTV or U2 are one thing, but if Drugstore.com or Yale University or the Dallas Morning News ever pulled a stunt like that . . .
