    This is very cool. Any chance to make it addressable? I.e., if I pause the video I can copy the URL and paste to another browser/window to resume right where I paused?

    I've made an addressable version, however it requires server-side code to redirect the url (apache mod_rewite) which doesn't work on MDN. If you download the source you will find a .htaccess file that will make it happen.
