Stream pricing in case of autoplay video on loop

Streaming: $1.00 per 1,000 minutes (postpaid)

Does Cloudflare Stream charge for each loop of a video? If a video is played on loop 20 times in a browser before the user closes it, will I be charged 20 times?

Stream only charges when the video has to be downloaded. When looping, the video almost always plays from the user’s browser cache after the first play which means only the first playback would count as billable usage.
