Interactive Video True Full Screen Mode - hiding the toolbar

An option to hide the toolbar during playback would provide a more similar user experience to other video platforms like youtube etc. and provide a true full screen, allowing the video to take up all the space of the screen where possible.

This is especially useful for many people that will use h5p just to insert a video without any or just optional interactions ie. bookmarks.

The behaviour would be ideal for the option to hide/unhide with any mouse movements if that's possible,
otherwise, a workaround for this option could be just to show the fullscreen icon in the right corner (and perhaps one for showing/hiding the toolbar)

That way the user can decide when to access bookmarks or other interaction (which can still be promoted in the beginning with bookmarks open or other messages to let the user know about their existence / how to access them).

Hi markusd1984,

Thanks a lot for contributing your ideas on how to make H5P better! We’re now working on something called the H5P supporter program allowing the H5P community to vote for and fund the top voted H5P features. Also there are developers in the community who every now and then works on a feature they find interesting or useful.


Second this ... I work with educational games. This feature would transform the interactive videos from a cool thing that will never look all that legitimate, or real, to something truly impressive... again, huge gains from an aesthetic perspective, and huge gains in a sense of immersion for the user--requiring very little coding.
