Video keeps playing after pop up window is closed

I'm using the most recent Indesign CC and Publish Online.


I've pasted in a YouTube HTML code for a video, and have made a button with two states.

State One is a play button, clicking it takes you to State Two, which is the video itself. It's designed to look like the video window appears on your screen like a pop-up.


It plays fine, the problem is if I click a close button I made that takes you back to State One where the video no longer appears, the damn thing keeps playing in the background, as the sound continues.


Because the video dows not reside on my computer - it's the code you copy when sharing from YouTube - I can't just make a button action that stops the media from playing. How can I make the video stop playing when you go back to State One, or is there another way to do this entirely? Thanks.
