I think both <img src="cutekittens.mp4"> and url(cutekittens-v-bulldozer.mp4) should be supported. We've done some internal prototypes and it's very nice.

I'm not sure about media controls on the <img> case. I think we should start with something that is the same behaviour as a GIF is today.

However,  the third example in the intro of CSS Generated Content Module Level 3[2] seems to imply that content can be a .mov which is a video format and some folks on twitter showed me things like 'using a video as a background' (but that seems like a different case than content to me and a whole other ball of wax).

I suppose what I am wondering at this point:  Am I reading the example correctly and are we expecting that might work - and be inherently non-interactive/inert as it is decorative?
