When <video> autoplay="false" (or autoplay is not defined) the first frame should be shown as a placeholder.  The whiteness just does not look too good.  Granted a lot of first frames will probably be black but it is a lot better than white.  Is there anything in the spec about this? Or could we at least "add a frame" that just displays something to at least let the user know that the video should be shown there.

Currently the first frame of the video is shown once it's loaded. eg. test2.html on my site should show the first frame after a delay where it is loaded.

If a poster attribute is on the video then this poster will be displayed instead. This is currently not yet implemented.

I didn't think about on http://www.double.co.nz/video_test/test4.html, that we have to choose which resolution first before anything is loaded...hence no first frame.  After I made a test case, I realized I was wrong and this bug is WFM.  Sorry for wasting time.
