Content blocking with possibility to unblock / ad-pausing?

Hi, main blocking feature is a must. What is coming is HTML5 video content that is often played automatically. it would be nice to be able to block it but have the option (maybe a small "play" button) unblocking the content when being clicked. So not ad blocking but kind of ad pausing paraller with main feature. Filters stay as they are but maybe another parameter is being added saying whether to remove the content or just pause it. What do you think?

    Hi Chris,

    You can temporarily disable AdBlock by clicking the AdBlock button and selecting **Pause AdBlock*. Is this maybe what you're looking for?
