One solution that could work here is to honour dynamic changes to 'preload',
so switching preload to 'none' would stop buffering. Then a script could do
that, for example, after the user has paused the video for ten seconds. The
script could also look at 'buffered' to make its decision.

"Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for
they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures
every day to see if what Paul said was true." [Acts 17:11]
