In playing videos (using vimeo) it has been noted that they sometimes hang due to something happening on the internet and dropping a connection. It would be nice if when using the play until done flag in a placeholder that the duration value could be used to specify a watch dog timer for the video so that if the video hangs the watch dog timer would end the video.
For example if the video normally plays for 5 minutes a maximum duration of 360 seconds (6 minutes) could be specified for the watch dog timer. A duration value of 0 could be used to specify that no watch dog timer would be specified and the video would be played until done.
It currently appears that the duration field is ignored when the play until done flag is set so I think this could be done with little impact.
Is there an alternate way of doing this functionality, it would sure be nice to prevent presentation hangs due to the internet...
