When you give your presentation and play a video, when you move your cursor over the object, pause, a timeline, and volume controls appear. If you don't want these to show, no matter where your slide your mouse, you can't turn them off completely. I'm on slide 6 of my presentation. I'll click on my video to select it, and then I'm going to go the Slideshow tab. Right in the middle of the Ribbon is a checkmark for Show Media Controls. Remove the checkmark and then play your slideshow again. This time no matter where I move my cursor nothing appears over my video.
If I click on the video it will start, and if I click on it again it will pause, and if I click anywhere else on the slide I'll advance to the next slide even if my video wasn't complete. By hiding my playback controls, I streamline the amount of visual clutter my audience sees during my presentation. This is also an ideal solution if I'll be playing my slideshow in kiosk mode, so that my viewer can't interfere with playback.
