[ubuntu] pausing mplayer while in loop mode

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I'm using the -loop 0 option at command line to force play of a video to repeat in an endless loop. I want to to add an option to pause/dwell the play for a few seconds at the end of the file before starting again at beginning. I've been unsuccessful with an internet search and read through the man pages. TIA. (Hardware)
