No, I mean that nothing about looping should be changed, so that if
the video pauses before the end due to a fragment end time, it just
won't loop. Unexpected, sure, but I don't think you'll find an
implementor eager to do proper looping with fragments because of the
complexity and edge-casiness of it.
