Since users have to download the video, I'm guessing it isn't being streamed at a reasonable
bit-rate but rather transmitted at full-rate like any other static file would be. If that's
the case, your bandwidth (and Tomcat's time) are being spent on bulky video transmissions
rather than serving up pages. I'd recommend taking a different approach, like using a content-aware
streaming package or maybe even offloading the video to a third-party network (e.g. YouTube).
