Play/Pause button

The play/pause button causes the video player to play or pause the video content when a user clicks it.
You can size, skin, and position the button, relative to the control bar that contains it, by CSS.
The following CSS class selector controls the appearance of the button:
.s7videoviewer .s7playpausebutton

CSS properties of the play/pause button

right
Position from the right border, including padding.

This button supports both the state , selected , and replay attribute selectors, which can be used to apply different skins to different button states. In particular, selected='true' corresponds to the "play" state and selected='false' corresponds to the "pause" state;
replay='true' is set when the video has reached the end and clicking on the button restarts playback from the beginning.
The button tool tip can be localized. See Localization of user interface elements for more information.
