getVideo(id).settings.disable(opacity) (since PennController 1.6)
Will disable the controls interface. Note that some browsers might make the controls disappear altogether.
If you pass no parameter, a 50% opaque layer will be printed on top of the interface. You can pass a value from 0.01 (fully transparent***) to 1 (fully opaque) to control the aspect of the layer.
*** the value 0 is mistreated as no-parameter by PennController 1.6, hence the need to use a non-null value close to 0.
[js highlight=”3″ try=”true”]newVideo(“skate.mp4”)
Prints a disabled interface for the video test.mp3 and starts playing it. The video will be fully visible because the layer is transparent (0.01 opacity).
