Details

1) Load video in attachment 663244 [details]
2) Let it play to the end (it's just a few seconds)
3) Observe that the play button correctly changes from "pause" to "play" at the end
4) Click that button

Expected:

The video should start playback from the beginning

Actual:

Sometimes the icon changes, but nothing else happens.

Dragging the scrubber back doesn't seem to work either.
Hmm, actually I think this is a Core bug, because the controls work as expected on https://people.mozilla.com/~dolske/tmp/rickroll.ogg

I'll make a wild guess that this is broken for the video in attachment 663244 [details] because it's on Bugzilla, and so byte-range requests don't work. (As one would expect, the length of the video is unknown until playback finishes.)

Yeah, we should probably look at adding a special case for this.

Works for me.
Sorry for bug spam.

Works on
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; from https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/41a54c8add09
and Android from same revision on Nexus 5.

Just tested on 29.0.1 Linux and works there, too.
