Can't pouse the storyline, course will desynchronize

Hi, recently I work on some project in storyline and rise. Basically it movie with multiple choice, something like "Bandersnatch" on netflix. There is a video of some guy talking to camera, and at the end there is choice of continuation for next movie. Problem is with the choice, becouse when you pause the video it breaks synchronization and choice apper after additional time witch we waiting through the pause. So you can't stop the course or else the course will be desynchron and you will wait for choice at the and of video. How can I Fix it?

The problem is if the learner can pause either the slide, or the video independently of the other. The best option is  do not have seekbar on video, and cover video with transparent object to prevent learner from clicking on video and stopping it. If the video cannot pause, then it is tied to the timeline of the slide. Stopping or pausing  the slide stops the video, and resuming the slide resumes the video. Synch is not broken.
