Hiding video bottom bar

Hi, First I want to say that I love this website, I just started this weekend, and am really excited to learn everything it has to offer.

I'm sure I'm not alone, but the one thing that is driving me nuts is that the bottom bar with the play/pause button and the full screen button, etc. will not hide when at all. I hope that you could code a hide/hover to show function into it so I can see all i need to when not in full screen mode (though it still shows up there too and also gets in the way).

Unless I am doing something wrong, I feel like this will improve the general user experience when using this website! Thanks for your time!

If I'm understanding you correctly, the video bar does hide. I've learned it will not hide unless you swipe your mouse over the video after it begins.

It doesn't hide unless I do the swipe over with my mouse. Than it hides and shows on mouse hover.

I'm not getting any change after doing so, I have tried multiple things to try to fix it, including that. It should be set up to hide automatically anyways.

Come on Treehouse. Fix this.
