In fact, there has been a lot of clear feedback that an API that only works
on video elements is unlikely to get much use, since major video sites very
strongly prefer to use their own player UI in fullscreen mode. And of course
their own player UI consists of non-video elements...

they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures
every day to see if what Paul said was true." [Acts 17:11]
