I have a very unusual requirement I need advise on:
I have a 2 minute video that I need to loop 100x, and then stop. I don't wish to generate a massive 200 minute encoded file. Rather I would encode only a 2 minute single loop, and somehow set either playlist or chapter flow MP4 metadata to get it to loop exactly (and only) 200x.
However, I really don't know how to do this.
I really would appreciate any help!

mpc-be has the option (o) Play -- [200 ] times(s), under
in other words, set it repeat 200 times. but, it only does this on correctly encoded/muxed videos. i am not able to get repeat playback to work correctly on some hevc->mp4 videos. it seems to stop at the end of playback and play an audio file from somewhere else while still showing the last frame. strange. anyway. i took one my very short happauge ts recordings and it repeated x many times i test setted it to, i.e., 5x.
edit: maybe this has something to do with that issue i mentioned. might be a bug.

Sorry, I should clarify.
I need the repeat 200x to be part of the mp4 metadata container control. It won't work for me to set a given player to loop it 200x, since I need to distribute it without my having any control over the choice of players that the recipients are using.
So the 200x repeat control needs to be 'inherent' in my file.
There is no such metadata for MP4 container that specifies what you want to do
According to wikipedia, there is menu support in MP4:
I would have thought then that a 'playlist' of multiple contained videos (or a single video referenced repeatedly) would be possible. Is it not?
What about .mov?
Any other suggestions?
Yes - In theory, there is "menu" support in many container specifications, but in practice, none of them have it implemented properly.
Even if you did for your file, the software/hardware player would need to have implemented support
e.g here is how to do menus for MP4
Quicktime might be able to do it , but it would only play on quicktime, other players won't support those other features
