NCAM (The Carl and Ruth Shapiro National Center for Accessible Media at WGBH) has a Flash-based video player called ccPlayer which has keyboard and screen-reader accessible controls. You can see the player in use on the U.S. Census Bureau's site. Here's a link to an example of one of their videos:

You can also find information and tools for creating captions and other accessible content on the NCAM site:

Hi, James.

The videos at Yahoo! Video are not captioned, but do have keyboard controls.

Look for the div with id alt_video_controls - these set accesskeys for
buttons that talk to the flash video player via Javascript.
