Not much of an issue, but it would be better if the misleading warning would be removed.

Poyekhali removed a project: Commons.

Commons don't allow .mov files, so Commons should not be involved here.

Just to be clear, you mean the warning that says "This file type may contain malicious code. By executing it, your system may be compromised." (mediawarning)?
