       How can I do that?

       Under Windows 7 Home Edition, selecting the output file "tst.mp4" 
in Windows Explorer plays it once as a thumbnail on the right.  Double 
clicking opens Windows Media player where it loops. I can click a stop 
button to cause it to stop, but I don't find an option to have it play 
only once.  And I don't recall encountering other files like this that 
repeat indefinitely like this.
