I know that is a work around for web developer...
But here is a the problem.

Many software Video players have a  "LOOP" button.
So I wish there is one for VIDEO/AUDIO tag in web browsers too...

If a UA implements  "LOOP" button, and user press it what should be
the value of playcount? if there is no std, one UA will implement it
as 9999999 another will have value 9999, another  99999999999 etc.
