invoked video player shows background

Hi all there,


we have a page, showing some content, and the user can tap on a video thumbnail. We then invoke the video player and the video opens and plays normally. The title and the menu hide after a few seconds. Taping on the video brings them back, but also shows the content of the underlaying page for a short moment, which is really annoying.


See here for a video:



We invoke tha player via:



The most basic solution to get rid of this effect would be to overlay the entire content of the underlaying page with a black rectangle, but there must be a 'real' solution for this problem. Is there anyone who can help or is facing the same problem?

Thanks in advance.

Re: invoked video player shows background

this has been logged as a bug internally and has since been fixed (i asked, and it was verified)


nothing should be changed from a developer point of view, with a new device update the problem should go away. unfortunately; we do not have any time/information as to when this fix will be available for production devices.
