I went through a pretty big search for something similar last year, and it's 
harder than you would think.  most of them to have at least a black screen if 
not a reloading symbol between each loop.

here are the results from my search:

1)  the Lacie LaCinema media player can do it, but it has been discontinued and 
is hard to find.

2)  there is a woman in france who can write a hack for a firmware update that 
can remove the little orange circle "reloading" symbol from the WD live media 
I forget how much she charges for the hack, but I don't think it was much... 

3)  a lot of people were using media players that were specifically designed 
for haunted houses in the US (go figure! who knew! apparently haunted houses 
are a big commercial industry there, and there are media players designed just 
for those that don't have the looping symbol)... sorry, I can't find any of my 
reference notes on makes or models though... :-(

4) finally, the easiest solution, that I went with... was I just put my media 
into Quicktime Pro... and copy paste copy pasted loop after loop to make a 10 
hour long video file.  so it only had to play once in the gallery anyway.

hope some of that is helpful, and if you find something, do let us know!
