Simple HTML5 video controls

Simple HTML5 video controls

Here is an example of using the media-control command to play HTML5 video, with a working video seeking slider. It's pretty basic, but serves as an starting idea.

Note: the fullscreenEnter and fullscreenExit are special Active CSS events as it seems useful to have these in addition to the regular fullscreenchange event. The slight camelcase for these events is present so there should be no clash if these events get natively added to the browser in the future.
