My own Play/Pause button

I want to disable the default seekbar and instead have my own Next/Prev/PlayPause buttons on the Topbar Right.

Adding the Prev/Next buttons is straightforward but how do I add a Play/Pause toggle?

There doesn't seem to be an action to play/pause media for the topbar right...

I'd prefer not to use slide master to add these controls

I did something similar.

I've implemented the next/prev/pauze... buttons on my masterslide.

When the user clicks the pauze button, I show a layer containing a 100% transparent background rectangle. The layer stops the timeline. Clicking in the slide while pauze, I just hide the pauze layer.

By implementing this on a masterslide, you'll have this feature wherever the layout is used.

hope it helped.
