s/browser feature/media player/. Users need media players anyway. Using a  
single device to both control playback and discover content is not exactly  
a hard problem. Just have two windows, one for play/pause/etc and another  
for searching for content. Links to content need not be aware of whether  
the content is to be displayed in a subwindow, on another screen or  
stored. If it's being played, a media player will be run. Otherwise not. A  
list of interesting content does not need to contain any logic as to when  
to pause video. Even if the content is interesting.
