    My favorite part: when you click the Settings icon, it rotates slightly (like a gear) to indicate an active state.

    A typical button state approach is darkening/fading or brightening buttons… this wouldn’t work since the video chrome is now transparent.

    So small, but so tasteful. Well done.
