I did a simple test of this:

<video controls aria-label="My video player">

Using VoiceOver on SL and Safari 5 the label wasn't read.

Using NVDA 2010.1 on FF 3.6 the label was read when tabbing to the player controls

Using JAWS 11 in Firefox 3.6 the label was read instead of the player controls, as AFAIK JAWS 11 doesn't support rendering the controls in the virtual buffer.
