Well, I hope Sam will find this info useful (myself is not a dev for adding  this to webpage/locally):

"simple method to stop YouTube, Vimeo, and HTML5 videos from playing."

basically the same but without comments. sometimes comments useful .....

   * Stop an iframe or HTML5 <video> from playing
   * @param  {Element} element The element that contains the video
  var stopVideo = function ( element ) {
          var iframe = element.querySelector( 'iframe');
          var video = element.querySelector( 'video' );
          if ( iframe ) {
                  var iframeSrc = iframe.src;
                  iframe.src = iframeSrc;
          if ( video ) {


and further in comments

Good idea, but how can I call the function on click to pause all iframe > videos on the page (without ID of every iframe) ?

@Luminicus This outta do it.
 * Stop all iframes or HTML5 <video>'s from playing
var stopVideos = function () {
        var videos = document.querySelectorAll('iframe, video');
        Array.prototype.forEach.call(videos, function (video) {
                if (video.tagName.toLowerCase() === 'video') {
                } else {
                        var src = video.src;
                        video.src = src;


but may be you already figured this out. I usually check git, not website itself :}

yes, I also have layers.acceleration.force-enabled enabled in Seamonkey, but this only accelerates in-browser compositing, IIRC

Yeah, 200%+ of CPU according to top :}

Video in avc1 (h264), so may be Chrome (and/or Firefox on windows?) actually use 
hw acceleration for *decoding* it, so effect not very notieceable ....
