           Summary: Can it be added that the poster image (if defined)
                    should continue to show until video is played for the
                    first time? Safari currently shows the first frame of
                    the video as soon as it's available (when preloading)

Comment:
Can it be added that the poster image (if defined) should continue to show
until video is played for the first time? Safari currently shows the first
frame of the video as soon as it's available (when preloading) while other
browsers continue to show the poster image. The latter would seem to be the
correct behavior, because if I deliberately set a poster image, I want that
image to show for as long as the video has not been played yet. If I
deliberately burn a poster frame into the first frame of the video itself, I
just won't set the poster image.
