How to prevent video from restarting from the beginning while using space bar to play and pause the video?

I like to follow along what is taught in tuts and to do that I have to switch from the browser window hosting the tut video to Android Studio or an IDE I am working on to practice writing the code. Sorry If I sound pedantic but when I switch(alt+tab) from my browser hosting the tut video to android studio, I prefer pausing the video by tapping the space bar and then when I am done with my work with Android Studio and want to return back to resume the tut, I have to tap the space bar again, what annoys is that second tap on space bar restarts the video from the beginning instead of resuming from the point where it was paused. It will greatly ameliorate UX if you can fix this behavior of your video player.

I run into the same problem. I know it's not the same and as exciting as the space bar, but clicking on the video with my cursor to pause and unpause does not restart the video.

Hopefully the space bar will work in the future though. :)

I think they have fixed this however video is still forced to start from the beginning after resuming from first pause but after that the play and pause feature work as expected.
