I am building a website with HTML5-
<video> in fullscreen background. There are pages in shape of
<div>s becoming visible with SWF-container player in them that cause serious CPU performance issues when both media play.
<div> becomes visible. Would be nice if it resumes again the playback when it gets closed/hidden.
Thanks in advance.
Note that there is no stop() method. In the function that shows/hides your DIV, place the play/pause function there.

My personal favourite is a small onclick handler added to html attribute, like this:
<video onclick="this.paused? this.play() : this.pause()">
since there are not traditional events on div hide/show you have to play() and pause() your video element when you call the functions that make your div appear/disappear
