Can I pause a Screencast?

A buddy sent me a screencast link recently, I'm shocked that I'm unable to pause the video. I briefly searched the archives but can't find the answer to my issue. Is pausing not an option with Screencast, is it a user error on my part, or is that functionality something the needed to be added by my buddy who made the video?

Do you know what kind of video it is? Pausing playback should work with just about any kind of video that Screencast currently supports, so I would be surprised if it wasn't working. Animated GIFs are one exception to this though, as they are treated like images instead of videos.

Some video players require that you hover the mouse cursor over the video to show the playback controls, which includes the play/pause button. You can also try simply clicking/tapping in the middle of the video while it is playing back, which also works for a variety of video types.

Let me know if this helps!
