Is there a way to automatically skip the intro videos in Left 4 Dead?

Each time I open TF2 I see the wonderful valve loading movie, I remember there was an option of --novideo for HL1 which used to remove it.

Any similar command line / preference I can use to disable it for Steam / TF2?

You can use "-novid" in for any Source game. To add it, right click on game and select properties. Then "Set Launch Options" and type in "-novid". This will skip the launch video.

Is there a list of all Launch Options for Steam games anywhere? – Tom Nov 17 '11 at 21:45
Will these options sync between Steam installs / machines? – Tom Nov 21 '11 at 11:02
I don't believe so – Dracs Nov 21 '11 at 17:48
