Video Player on IDI site

I can't remember if this is a known issue, or if it's even fixable, but I notice that in fullscreen mode the video and its controls are pinned to the bottom-left corner of the screen. Is it possible to have the controls span the entire bottom of the screen, and to do one of the following:

1. Stretch the video in fullscreen mode so that it fits the full size of the screen (while still respecting the aspect ratio of the video)
2. Centre the video on the screen

Are these doable with the current release of the Video Player?

Also, I noticed that we did a lot of styling tweaks to make the Video Player look nice in this WordPress site. Are any of these changes the sort of thing that other users of the Video Player will need to do themselves? If so, do you think any of these styles can reasonably be contributed upstream to the core Video Player codebase?
