I would create a custom show. One slide with just the video set to play with previous and the transtion to auto after zero seconds

Make a button link to the custom show with show and return ticked

The video will -play when the link is clicked and auto return to the start slide.

All of the above will work, but  I think this is thesimplest:
Just choose Insert>Video and the default settings are to play on click. Once the video plays, it returns to the slide show. You can modify the placeholder of the video to look any way you like.
