All I know that all I need to do is to move the mouse downwards and the control bar pops back at the bottom of the screen and there is a horizontal indicator which if you position your mouse on it then you can go to a point before or ahead of where you presently are.

Start Windows Media Player |
if you do not have a menu on the Windows Media Player screen showing File View Play Tools Help, then press the CTRL + M key combo |
select Help from the menu | click on "About Windows Media Player" |
what version number do you see?

Now if from that same menu, you choose Tools | Options .... | Player tab |
uncheck Allow autohide of playback controls | OK button

Use the problem steps recorder. Start, type "step" select problem steps recorder. Show the person. It saves a zip like this:
q.zip

What type of video is it? Rather, what format is it? I've had it happen to me before on some .flv videos--very rarely, but it has happened to me. My solution has been not watch that video... Or see if there is another format.

It was packed into a .zip and the format was .wmv. I just wanted to attach it with the paperclip. Did not want to bother to upload it to Vimeo because it was only a bit over 2MBs.
