If you could have the ability to change a setting in
the configuration file so that the video will
continuously loop, that would be great. An option in
the right click menu would be pretty nice too ;)

    I added looping ability by patch 1183564 but this is for 2.66.
    We can set the count (or infinite) of loop by HTML.
    But in 2.80 this function didn't operate correctly because
    threading
    mechanism seems to be changed between 2.66 and 2.80.
    After applying patch 1183564 to 2.80 (manually) if you set loop
    count by HTML, MPlayer+plugin will start as much threads.
    As a result if you push stop button, play will not stop for
    a while
    until started threads finished.

    Heh, I was about to submit this as a bug report. It's hard to find a video player that doesn't have this option. Unfortunately, three years later and no progress, so it looks like this'll never get implemented.

    This isn't really a fix, but since mplayer-plugin still reads the mplayer config file, you can configure it to always loop by adding loop=0 to ~/.mplayer/config
