Why don't I have playback controls on stock Android video player?

I've searched the Web but maybe I am not using the right keywords so sorry if this has been asked before.

I'm currently on the latest android on galaxy s5 and as of today whenever I try to stream or play a video on my phone, I get no buttons such as play/pause or the progress( right word? ) bar. I simply have the video playing and that is it.
It plays as normal and ends as normal, I can also exit as normal, just no playback controls.

I've tried uninstalling the one app I downloaded since yesterday, cleared the cache and data for the video player, I have restarted the phone and now I'm all out of ideas.

Can anyone please help me as this is doing my head in!

Thanks
