Loop of the Planet of the Apes

So evidently I don't understand LiveStream. The embed code for the video below landed in my inbox yesterday, as part of a promotional package for the forthcoming "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" (aka the Umpteenth James Franco Project). It's an exclusive chat taped at WETA Studios in New Zealand, which went live last night at 6 p.m. ET, followed by an additional clip from the film and the teaser trailer's Apple debut.

Trouble is, the chat (featuring go-to mo-cap star Andy Serkis and the film's VFX supervisor) isn't a play-any-time, YouTube sort of deal; it's on a continuous loop. Ergo, to my understanding, pressing PLAY just means jumping into a video already in progress. Strange. But anyway, anything from WETA has intrigued me ever since the studio produced eye goodies for a certain modest little trilogy, so if you feel the same, jump in! Er, eavesdrop:
