How about controls overlaid on top of video, which are visible only when  
mouse hovers it? Something like fullscreen controls in QuickTime Pro or  
iTunes 7.

To ensure that video is always usable:
* UI would be on by default (but visible on hover)
* Author could disable it using attribute of <video> element
* User could re-enable controls using context-menu or some other method  
(in case author disabled default UI and failed to provide usable
