We played with that quite a bit, and decided eventually not to call
EndOfStream at all. The experience on was inconsistent when user seeked to
the end of the video, and without calling endOfStream we managed just fine.
Maybe on current/future versions the behaviour is better though. We haven't
checked that recently.
