Detecting Fullscreen+flash mouseMove events when control bar is disabled

My setup:
JW Player 7
Flash Only
Controls disabled (Implemented a custom control bar)

I am hiding and showing my custom events when the user moves there mouse, however when full screen, the mouse move events are not captured due to flash. Is there a way to attach my mouse move functions another way? Via Actionscript or any other way?

Hi, there.

I personally have tried numerous things over my time here to handle mouse movement when the player is in Flash and full screen, and have not been able to come up with something that works. With that being said, something like that would also be outside of the scope of support we provide.

Obviously, if someone else on this community forum has a suggestion they would like to add, that would be great. :)

Please let me know if you need any more help or have any other questions.

Thank you!

@Chase - You can attach your mouse events to the jwplayer container and this still works in Flash + Fullscreen (not sure why Alex has found this so hard to do).

I suspect therefore your issue is more to do with getting your custom controls to appear over the Flash player in Fullscreen rather than the actual detection of mouse events. This is also simple to do, but it requires that your controls are placed correctly within the player DOM hierarchy.

If you can provide an example page, I'll take a look and build you a working solution.
