I'm looking for an opensource/free non branded media player for my website. It needs to be a Vimeo or Ooyala style player with controls that only appear on mouse over. I would like to have the option to place my logo in the bottom right corner on playback.

Use HTML5 or YouTube. Where's your website located?

You could try FlowPlayer. I've never used it myself, but from the examples, it looks like it may be what you are looking for.
You'll notice the the GPL (free) version embeds the FlowPlayer logo. Just where or how intrusive that is, I'm not sure. I wasn't able to find an example of the free version in use.
Okay I found an example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dhf49R65WLo
It's at the end of the tutorial. It looks to me like it shows a small logo at the bottom left of the video, but only as it is loading. It seems to disappear once the video starts. Not bad at all if you ask me.
If you want the player to be everything you want it to be, exactly as you have envisioned, why don't you just make one yourself?
You can get a trial of Flash from adobe.com
Then you can create your own custom player just as you want it.

Make your own HTML5 Video Player. It's easy, free, and not branded. Plus, your viewers don't need annoying Flash plugins and it will have a less risk of crashing if using Internet Explorer or Firefox. Here's how to make one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_nN8Si5LKyY
