This was exactly my thought.

If playcount="5" causes the video to be played 5 times, what should  
the result of each of these be?


Is there any possible usefulness whatsoever in making playcount="0"  
not play the video at all?  If not, I don't see a good reason not to  
use that to mean infinite looping.

Either that, or some keyword, but I don't know what it should be.   
"infinite" and "forever" come to mind.
