It's very difficult to answer this question, because before knowing the how? we need to know the why?. Remember: at any time, at every point, in UX context is everything.

I think that A1 only should be increased because we know the user intentionally clicked on the A1 annotation on the list, and that we don't know for sure that he has seen the A2 during the video. So maybe you should keep track of two counters : user click view who would keep track of user click on annotations video views, which would keep track of the ...

I would count both and also keep an additional parameter capturing whether this view was intentional or forced, alternatively you can capture both and also capture annotation data on click

The sound channel from the video could be used along with the poster frame to give an extremely lo-fi preview. Some platforms also select keyframes from points in the video ...

Option 2 will be more user friendly. Since the user is tapping to add annotation; which also means the user is pausing the video to add annotation. And per the rule of consistency - if the user has clicked (paused) to perform some action, he should again click (play) to resume the task.

If I would be the user using your site, I prefer video should continue, when I click on button placed on successful message, saying "continue watching". Or You can place a countdown message saying "Your annotation is successfully created, now video will continue is 3 secs." At that time in-order to let user edit his annotation, put a small link saying ...
