Re: Adding a fullscreen bitmap to eyelidfieldmanager works fine but adding videofield doesn't show controls over the top

I also have similar issue as you right now where I want to display the EyelidFieldManager on navigation movement while the video is playing. But based on what I've read across different forums, the video will always be on top so you cannot overlay any field or manager, including EyelidFieldManager, on a playing video, except for OS 7.0 where you can have an AdvancedVideoControl (although I haven't tried this yet).


That's why I ended up pausing the video in order to show the EyelidFieldManager on top of the video. But I still have one more issue as of this moment, which is to automatically resume playback once the EyelidFieldManager hides.
