Is it possible to use Premeir Pro, or some other product, to get an MP4 to automatically stop at specified points, and restart when the screen is clicked?  Note, I can program this with JavaScript, but I need to be able to get a video file to do this by itself, without a second file.

When authoring a DVD (I will 'guess' blu-ray as well, but I only create DVD) you can put a stop marker in the timeline... but that is only used to make playback return to the main menu, so you may have 'bonus' video after the end of the regular movie

I want to thank Bob and John for their responses.  They confirmed the answer, which is what I needed to know.

You can do this with H5P's "interactive video" player: https://h5p.org/interactive-video

 

It's primarily intended for educational uses, and since I'm a teacher, that's what I use it for. However, it will do exactly what you need (and far more, take a look) with any video.

 

I think the paradigm shift you need is: you don't need your "video file" to stop and go... because there isn't a video file that does that. What you need is a video PLAYER that will stop and start your video file at certain points.

 

H5P is pretty amazing. 🙂
