Yes, I set it to black because that is the background color of the whole embed player.
I can't show the slide preview because the plugin for the slides (and every other plugin) itself load after the player is initialized.

Well, we have to find another solution then. First, the rectangle doesn't fully cover the slide previews (some bright pixels to the left and the right). Then, this rectangle is pitch black, while the play bar has a colour gradient from black to a lighter black. Together with the issues in MH-7323, this give several black, not so black and gradient black areas (cf. embed.jpg, sorry for uploading twice).
First, we should see whether to change this from a technical (loading video vs. plugin) or a design side - what do you think?

Denis, I had the e-mail notification for this ticket in my inbox for months, but only now I find the time to look at your work - excellent! The hover-over effect activating the control bar and the logo is great, plus switching from video to VGA, that's neat. Thanks for your effort.

PS: Of course you know me, so I have a little complaint, this is why I re-opened the ticket: There are still some pixels missing at the right end of the lowest control bar... cf. attachment.

Old player is no longer being worked on.
