Currently researching methods to embed Flash movie (FLV and/or H.264 MP4) into a WordPress post, while hiding the player bar, so a viewer cannot pause the 2-minute video or stop it. Yes, that may anger some viewers, but that's what the client wants. The loss of viewers does not compare against the CTR of the viewer that stays, comparing CTR of pause and no-pause styled sites. (Personally, I'd leave the site, but that's just my preference.)
This looks to have some potential: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simple-flash-video/
