ability to start playback in pause mode
In our use of vlc player, we need to be able to "set up" a video for instant playback at a later time. While it is possible to do this by rewinding and pausing quickly, it is difficult to get to the first frame.
We also need to be able to have the video end in pause on the last frame without going to logo or desktop.
Ideally, these options could be set up in the playlist, however a command line flag could be usable also. -- thanks, morris
