I thought about this myself.

My thought looked like this:

<form action="video:" target="video element id">
<input type="button" name="play">

However, my thought would abuse a possible video: protocol and make
input or button or forms in general even more complicated.

I don't think implementors would be interested in hacking up forms
this way, but I could be wrong.
