It would be great if we could set the player controls to 'top' or 'bottom', or even a more detailed position control.

Thanks.

Hello Pedro. I don't think that's something we are likely to offer.

Why not? There are specific situations that the controls would be visible if set to 'top'.

If the controls are at the bottom and they get hidden depending on the position of the screen, users would not recognize that there is a video in the page, but if set to top, the experience wouldn't be affected.

For one thing we have a need to exercise some control over the layout of our player UI for consistency and usability. There are also tons of variable which are all tied together. You can simply move one piece of control to top without affecting the other elements (eg. buttons, portrait, title and byline display, etc.)

This would be very useful. At present the built-in controls are obscuring interviewee information inside videos I'm trying to deploy. It would be great if there was an option to place the controls directly below the video, rather than hovering on top.

Thanks.
