What "actual controls element"?  There is no such thing.

Again, events based on the actual actions are the way to go.  If
you're trying to track user's behavior in some way, what happens if
you're listening for clicks on the controls but they instead do a
right-click on the video and select "pause" from there?  The scenario
you're trying to defend is broken from the start. :/
