Timed Pausing on Video

I need to stream video hosted on JW Player on a Wordpress site but I need the video to pause at set times so the user can read the text in the video. Once the user has read the text then they can click on a button to continue. Looking into this, it would appear that using JavaScript would allow me to do it. I am fairly new to Java, but feel that I may be able to manipulate some existing code to work for my movie stream. However whenever I try to use the <source src=/> tag all I get is a message saying "Invalid Source" where the video should be. If I use the <script src/> tag then the video plays but the controls don't appear to work. As I mentioned earlier I am new to Java so is this something that just isn't achievable when streaming video from JW?

I do apologise if what I have asked just makes no sense.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Hi, there.

There is no built-in functionality to do what you are trying to do, but it may be able to be accomplished with JavaScript. However, before I try to figure out a solution for you, can you confirm that have the ability to add custom JavaScript to your Wordpress site?

Thank you.
