Start stop CSS animation - multiple elements

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have the following. 

  • 2 images, one gif (.running), one still (.paused).
  • Headline within an animated div that blinks.

I have the following code that works a treat for the images. (click the image, hide it and show the other)
However, I want to use the same click events to also change the divs animation play state, from running to paused, but I'm missing something when calling the div and it doesn't work. I'm a javascript novice.

Could I please get some advice on where I'm going wrong?

const workmix = document.getElementById("#block-yui_3_17_2_1_1701277236499_87692");
 $(function() { 
  $('.running').click(function() {
    workmix.style.animationPlayState = "paused";
  if ($('.running').data("clicked", true)) {
    $('.paused').click(function() {
      workmix.style.animationPlayState = "running";
#block-yui_3_17_2_1_1701277236499_87692 {
  animation: blinker 4s step-start infinite;

@keyframes blinker {
    38%, 58%, 78% {
    opacity: 0;
   28%, 48%, 68% {
     opacity: 1;
<div class="sqs-block html-block sqs-block-html" data-block-type="2" id="block-yui_3_17_2_1_1701277236499_87692"><div class="sqs-block-content">
	<div class="sqs-html-content">
  		<div class="sqsrte-scaled-text-container loaded"><span class="sqsrte-scaled-text" style="font-size: 266.4px;"><h1 style="white-space:pre-wrap;">Work mix</h1></span></div>

<div class="introLoaderTape">

  <img class="tape paused" src="https://mrwatt.co.uk/s/Cassette_mov_128_still.gif" width="100%"/>
