Additional Comments
Expander triangle

Use the playRate property to speed up or slow down playback of a movie or sound.

Value:

The playRate of a player is a real number.

By default, the playRate property of a newly created player is set to 1.

Comments:

The playRate is the ratio between the desired playback rate and the natural rate of the movie or sound. A playRate of 1 plays the movie or sound at normal speed; a playRate greater than one speeds up the playback; a playRate less than one slows down the playback.

A negative playRate plays the movie or sound backward.

If the playRate is zero, the movie or sound is paused.

"If the playRate is zero, the movie or sound is paused." In my testing playrate returns 1 even when movie is paused/not playing. I am not sure if there is currently a programmatic way to determine if the movie is playing
