String Description
autoRewind Mode indicating whether the tracks are rewound to the beginning after playing to the end. Default state is true.

When the showFrame mode is active, the Player must access the track content to retrieve the video frame. Due to bandwidth considerations, use this mode cautiously when playing non-local content.
