Any way to disable the annoying prompt to delete viewed movies?

Keeps asking me to delete the movie after I've watched it. Seriously. In my mind it's like watching a DVD, then getting a prompt at the end asking if I'd like to format the DVD to free up space. Sure, I'll take a dirty diaper with my side of fries.

I like the feature... My rewatch value on the iPhone, when I'm going to be syncing again in another few hours, is very very low, so I think it's a nice feature to just delete it once I've watched the whole movie (however I can see that it doesn't really help unless you take a boat load of pics or add a million contacts). But to each his own I guess :)

I suppose it is a usage thing. For me, I only keep work related clips on the phone to show other people. And they get shown a lot. That constant prompt to delete really gets old fast, especially since it's easy to tap the screen by accident and delete it.

I'm not a fan of this feature. I have a few video podcasts that I sync. If I have them set at say the 5 newest only, then if I delete one, the next time I sync, it comes right back again!

These feature really only works when you have podcasts and whatnot set to only sync unwatched video.

This deletion popup should be an option that can be turned off or on based on user preference either through the phone or at the very least through itunes.
