JWPlayer 6.8: OnDisplayClick event doesn't work on iPad in fullscreen mode

Hi there!

I'm trying to implement interactivity for video playback and I can successfully handle OnDisplayClick event on iPad in normal mode, however in fullscreen mode this doesn't work.
Is it possible to catch clicks in fullscreen on iPad? I found that touchstart and touchend can't be handled neither by document nor by controlbar.

I checked out JW Player 6.8 sources and tried adding logging in jwplayer.utils.touch.js:

document.addEventListener(TOUCH_START, touchHandlerFS);
document.addEventListener(TOUCH_END, touchHandlerFS);

function touchHandlerFS(evt) {

However, as I said, in fullscreen mode when you click on video no logs appear (tested on Chrome in iPad emulation mode).

Any advice? :-)

Thanks in advance!

This might be because in full screen mode the default iOS player takes over.

Do you mean default iOS controls overlay that prevents events going to underlying content?
So, probably there's no way to fix this, sad :-(

Anyway, great player and controlbar works perfect in iOS! (except fullscreen :-)
