I recently downloaded the trailers for Portal 2 and Portal. While the trailer for Portal ended up where I expected it to go (<steamdir>\steamapps\media), the ones for Portal 2 ended up in subdirectories under <steamdir>\steamapps\common , mixed in with all the games and making it frustratingly difficult to find them outside of Steam.

Who is to blame for this mess? Just put the bare video files in <steamdir>\steamapps\media and keep things simple.

Please patch Steam so that all trailers end up in <steamdir>\steamapps\media (and move any which are not there when the patch is installed).

Also, when I was hunting for those trailers, I found a couple of demos still present on my hard drive, even though I'd since bought the full games. Why weren't those deleted when I installed the full games?
