Thanks very much Norman.

The pausability is down to the player. If the videos are downloaded to your local PC and 
played in something like totem, gxine, mplayer or vlc then it should be pausable. I have 
certanily paused the video in totem on my PC. If the videos open directly in the browser 
then it might not be quite so easy.
