I don't think it makes sense to change the URL each time here. The page has a
long audio file with a set of segments that you can jump to. That makes sense,
and works fine. If you want a clean pause point, then I would argue the best
solution is to create a text track with a cue for each segment, with
pauseOnExit set to true.

This again seems to just be one media file with jumping to different segments.
You wouldn't want to replace the URL on the fly, that would trigger a file
reload each time.

That's supported (jump to relevant point); you wouldn't want to stop playing
after the 1 second of playback that contained the search term!

> - pagination:

That use case doesn't make any sense. Why would you require that someone do
something at the end of the 20 minutes to see more?

Providing media fragment end support in the src="" attribute wouldn't fix this.

If he uses SMIL, it works already, no need for a change to HTML.

I can't figure out a way to get this to stop before the end of the video. The
example URL you give just plays a YouTube clip from a point to the end.
