Right now fullscreen is absolutely positioned to leave space for the transcripts window on the right, which is why 1) and 2) you mentioned are issues. We did this because we were unable to find a cross-browser css solution that looked good consistently, with the current markup. Maybe if we revisit the way divs are layered/structured next time around, a more fluid full-screen cross-browser layout would be possible. Till then, we had to go with what worked and looked good!
As for WP styling, I think our additions were pretty minimal. We tweaked the max-width of the player so that it fit within our content area. This led to some other tweaking for the play overlay. But we also set a background colour to video-element, to improve the display of our widescreen vids, and this should likely be added to the core. I'll create a jira for this.

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?
