t=20s could be:
* a clip from 20s to 20s
* the whole myvideo, but start playing at 20s (as if the user had 
dragged teh slider to 20s before playback)
* 20s to the normal end of the media, with material before 20s removed

The first is not very useful, but both the others are.  However, the 
second is not a fragment, but a start-playing-at.
