Currently the spec says that .paused will be false when media playback has  
ended. However, this results in unexpected user interface with the native  
controls. When playback has ended, I expect the play/pause button to show  
"play", not "pause", because pausing does nothing while playing will seek  
to the beginning and play.

Therefore I suggest that the spec should say to pause the video when it  
has ended (when playing forwards).
