Repeated requests for space.png from some browsers

Steps to reproduce

Steps to reproduce:
1. Play an engage video using Chrome browser (e.g. 29.0.1547.57 on MacOS)
2. Using Chrome inspector to look at http requests, or look at webserver logs (e.g. if using an apache frontend)
3.

Actual Results:
Repeated requests for /engage/ui/img/misc/space.png while the video is playing

Leads to a high volume of traffic (can easily be 2-3 requests per second per user). Approximately 80% of traffic on our production system (excluding CA requests) are for space.png.

Expected Results:
Should only request space.png once
