 In fact, the loop option works, but the timestamps are reset for each
 iteration, and that leads ffmpeg to drop frames.

 We could fix movie to update the timestamps for each loop iteration,
 adding the timestamp of the end of the previous iteration. But I am not
 sure it is the right thing to do: the same problem will happen if movie is
 used with a VOB file with a timestamp reset in the middle, for example.
