Following on from the previous 'autopause' demo I have also produced a method of selecting different videos and having an external set of controls (play/pause/rewind) whilst hiding the Vimeo controls.

So click any of the three video choices to have this fade into view, then click the control icons to play, pause and rewind the video.

Clicking another video will pause a currently playing video which when reselected will contimue from the paused position.

As with the previous demo a playing video will pause when off screen and continue when moved back on screen.

iOS does not allow external video controls as the only method of controlling a video, so I have added a fallback for these devices so that the video control is visible and only the playlist is available.
