Cannot pause Adobe Flash Player 9

I'm trying to watch an instructional video which appears to have been made for viewing with Adobe Flash Player 9 (well, that's what I've got installed in my Ubuntu anyhow). It's on but this link may not work for you, since it's an Open University file and you may have to be a registered student to gain access to the link.

The problem is that at certain stages you are meant to pause the video to work things out, before continuing. And I cannot find a way to pause it. The video is not downloadable since it appears as part of an HTML page. When I right click I just get "Settings" and "About Adobe Flash Player 9", neither of which lets me pause the video!

Is there any way I can pause a flash video if there is no "control" (like there is on YouTube)? Or is there any software I can download to view these files rather than Adobe's own Flash software, that will let me pause?

Oh, silly bugger. The "control panel" for this "Adobe Capture" thing is located right at the bottom of the HTML page itself, and I failed to realise the last quarter inch of my page was just off the edge of my screen! After I scrolled down a smidgen, there were the control buttons!
