I'm designing an interface where a user needs to select a video from a library of videos in a modal window. Once the selection is made, the modal closes and they end up back on the page they started.
I was planning on having the video start playing on mouse-over and have the sound mutued. The user would also see a "Click to select" instruction appear when they hovered over the video.
I'm wondering if it's acceptable to override clicking to pause the video with clicking to select? (My concern is that someone may expect to pause the video on click, instead of select it)
The user would be able to pause the video by using the play menu bar that also appears on hover.
I'm making the assumption that stoping the video is a secondary action since the the user can just move from one video to the other by scrolling through the modal.
