It sounds to me that a full-fledged and controllable video player should have 
options to configure what buttons to show and callbacks to decide what to do. 
If the standard widget doesn't have it, maybe we can build it by ourselves and 
provide it as a controllable QML element.

So you won't be able to draw your own elements and you won't be able to draw 
besides the video player, but this is better than not playing anything at all.
