Polite loaded video - autoplay or is click required?

I'm creating a html5 banner that first show an image. When the page is loaded (using dhtml.sharedEvents.once('pageLoadComplete', init);), the image will be replaced by a <video> with a source that is hosted externally. Questions: 1. In what ways am I allowed to start this video (that is loaded politely)? Is it ok to play it directly, or on mouseover, or does it have to be on click? 2. Does all video require pause-button?
