If you're watching it from your own media, you'll come to the end of
the file/DVD/whatever and VLC will know. End-of-file is a well-known
condition with well-defined semantics. :)

And in the theatre, there's a definition of the end based on the
origin of the material (the stage manager's script/music score, or
something). Yep, there's always an end marker somewhere.

But we are now hopelessly off topic, I think!
