But if the user stops watching five minutes through a one-hour video,
'playthrough' would save a *lot* of bandwidth.  If anything, preload="all"
should be dropped so there's only preload="playthrough".  But there's a
difference; you can't freely seek if it's only loaded enough to playthrough,
for instance (that might only be the first ten seconds).
