I just noticed the Brightcove 4 release and saw that the new upcoming features include a chromeless player with fading player controls. Is it known whether this will be based on BEML somehow? Also, are there any more details on this player and how the fading behavior happens (i.e., is it fade in/out on hover over a VideoDisplay or something similar?).
Thanks - looks like a great set of features coming up!

Thanks for the quick reply Todd,
The video player at that link doesn't appear to show/hide the controls on mouseover, but it's good to know that it's coming. Will this feature support all the themes that are currently available for skinning players?

That player should show/hide while the video is playing. But it is a custom player and isn't the exact same as the OOB player we will provide, so perhaps it wasn't the best example anyway.
We are still finalizing the theming that will be available with the new player, but it should support multiple themes and color styling, yes.

Any rough timeline you could provide on this feature would be immensely helpful. We are currently trying to implement something using BEML MediaControls and either setVisible or setAlpha and neither works properly according to the documentation to hide the MediaControls. Do you have a recommendation for something in the interim until the chromeless controls are available?

I see that there is a ChromelessVideoPlayer item in the BEML component documentation. This is great news! It isn't clear from the documenation whether this element works in conjunction with MediaControls. Will it use a MediaControls component if it exists?
