I was speaking from a user and web developer viewpoint. For the user what
happens is that the video plays through and visually goes into a paused state.
Then the user hits the play button again, but the onplay event doesn't fire for
the web developer. That to me seems a disconnect, since both the user and the
web developer perceive a change in play state, but the browser doesn't
recognize that. It seems logical that when the user hits the play button, the
onplay event should fire.

Your suggestion of setting the state upon ended to paused may be another way of
fixing the problem. I'd be happy with either solution as long as it has the
effect that when a user hits the play button an onplay event is fired.
