Splunk download page terrible UX

Path Finder

The website has no feedback link, so I'm posting this here. FF36 Win7. I go here
http://www.splunk.com/en_us/download/universal-forwarder.html
And some voice starts blasting through my headset talking about machine data and what splunk is. Like a sales pitch video. EXCEPT I can't find any player button to make is stop. It's bad enough that a website started making noise without asking me first, but worse still there is no way to stop it. I really really hope this is a QA failure somewhere and that it wasn't intentional.

Thanks for raising this. I asked the web team about it and they turned off the auto play. There is a bug they will fix to prevent this, but it is turned off in the meantime.

Thanks for the quick response. Also I'm sorry for my terse remarks, I had a hot mic on a conference call and got ambushed by it, but the new splunk,com looks great.
