This issues DOES occur on the Flame 2.1 KK (319mb) and the Flame 2.0 KK (319mb)
Result: Video controls will disappear such as the option to scrub through video. Unpause button is still accessible by pressing the play button in the middle of the screen.

Correction, Step 2 should read "2) Launch the Gallery App."  and not the Video app. This issue only occurs in the Gallery App. The Video app appears to be fine.
It seems that the gallery settings toolbar is shown instead of the video controls. Unsure of the expected design here. NI Gallery owner to see if this intended or not

I remember when paused, it should show the video slider UI, but I can't remember for sure. Pinging jsavory for UI check.

Forwarding this one to Tiffanie as she is UX lead on Gallery and Video.

I think this may be redundant with these other two bugs?

This is no longer reproducible in master, qawanted for status on 2.2 and 2.1
Keywords: qawanted
This issue still reproduces on Flame Master, 2.2, and 2.1. the controller disappears when the video is paused. Instead, the gallery menu bar appears instead.

Note that this issue occurs in Gallery app, NOT in Video, as the original reporter corrected on Comment 2. This might not be a valid bug, as the user can easily resume the video by pressing the play button on the screen.

As observed, the playback controls are getting replaced with gallery toolbar actions when the video is paused. This is to spec - that's not to say the design/interaction can't or shouldn't be improved, but it does make this fall out of bug territory and land more in the feature request or backlog bucket.
