Aren't you describing a videoclip? The videoclip object is played
through a player, so you can show its controller:
set the showController of the templatePlayer to true
play videoclip "My Clip"
Since playing a clip creates a temporary player for display, the
settings of the templatePlayer are used when playing the clip.
