  • It appears to depend on the app you're using to play the movie back with. For example, the Netflix app and the stock Videos app seem to respect the pause functionality of the earbuds, whereas the video player embedded in the stock photos app, as well as FileExplorer (my current tool of choice for network browsing) appear to ignore the remote, passing the command through to the stock Music app.
