Hi Cocos Team, @slackmoehrle,
Currently on web platforms, CCVideoPlayer is implemented by creating a dom video element over the canvas. This posses some limitation such as unable to layers UI built using nodes on top of a video. Would like to suggest an implementation of video based on this example mozilla has given:
With this, video textures can be extracted and rendered similar to how a CCSprite, CCTexture2D animation is done. We can even apply shaders to the video this way. Please consider such implementation.
