Gradient overlay when idle

When the tools are visible in JWplayer 8, there is a dark gradient coming up from the bottom of the player. It darkens any captions and the bottom portion of the video, so I'd like to figure out how to just remove that. I've tried adjusting nearly every tag in the CSS Skinning document, but so far I haven't had any luck making it go away. Can someone help me figure out which tag I need adjust to make that change?

Hi there,

You should be able to get rid of the gradient with the following CSS:

.jw-controls-backdrop {
  background: none !important;

Thank you.
