I want to display video in a Jupyter notebook, and I would like to customize the behaviour of the video by changing some of the attributes of the HTML5 element (autoplay, loop, muted, ... see e.g. [1])


This PR allows this by adding an option to the Video constructor:

Video("foo.mp4", html_attributes="controls loop")

Another solution would have been to add boolean options for each properties

Video("foo.mp4", loop=True, autoplay=False)

but that might be too cumbersome to maintain for such a specialized feature.

This looks great, @mancellin! I like how you've already added the new functionality to the examples AND spruced up the formatting of the doc string for the rendered API docs ! 🍰
