Note that you may have to download the videos as it may not play in
the browser by default.

They shows the stack moving towards apogee and the upper stage
performing the circularization burn. After that, the upper stage
performs two more smaller burns, probably separating the payloads in
between, and then dumping the remaining fuel. The movies ends when
twilight gets too bright.

It's an amazing sight to see an upper stage perform these maneuvers to
deploy a payload into a geosynchronous orbit.
