:: mplayer -loop 0 filename (looping playlist) will restart every time, but
:: mplayer filename -loop 0 (looping single file) won't.

Excellent! Even better than the -fixed-vo advice. But this
introduces another problem. At the beginning of each loop, after the
first run-through, "white bars" [|||||||||] get inserted in the playing
video for half a second or so. I don't see an option to inhibit
these. Is there a way to turn this off.
Thanks so much for your help.
(It goes without saying that MPlayer is just superb! Looks like it
will be a wonderful tool for our research here at Sharp Laboratories
(Sharp Corp.'s U.S. Research Laboratory).
