I stand corrected (a tiny bit) as I finally found this among the 
LiveCode Lessons: http://lessons.livecode.com/m/4603/l/44283-using-players
It actually has an annotated picture (at 
https://media.screensteps.com/image_assets/assets/001/160/690/original/36c81ebf-9b3a-4610-a259-fbc2eacd2843.png) 
of the controller and the sparse notation:
"The controller that appears at the bottom of the player allows the user 
to start and stop play back(1), control the volume(2) and move to a 
certain point in the sound file or movie(3,4)."

And, yea, I probably could have tried every key and click combination in 
the time I have spent searching for documentation :-(
