Explanation:
Although "vamos" is followed by a question mark it is a colloquial way of making a strong invitation.The speaker is expecting not to be refused.



If you analise what is said after the "vamos", the speaker feels confident he or she will be accepted.

Explanation:
I think that 'vamos' here may mean 'let's get on with this' rather than 'let's go' because the person is saying they want to play/start the video right away.
