Great stuff. Is it supposed to update the media fragment playback after 
a browser refresh? It works for me the first time I load the fragment. 
However, if I change the media fragment in the browser (e.g., from 
t=10,20 to t=15), then do a refresh of the page, the video starts from 
position 0s (BTW: running in Google Chrome 15.0.874.121 m).
