I would say it fires much later than that. For example we've made
background images block the load event. See [1][2] for history.

In general 'load' fires when all external resources have been pulled
down. But it does make sense to me to exclude <video>s from this, so
the suggestion to wait until the poster have been loaded and/or the
videos temporal and spacial dimensions are known.
