Just got this tablet so still playing around but one thing that is really bugging me is the inability of the on screen buttons (or nook equivalent of them) to disappear when playing video. Tried a few different players none seem to work, however netflix seems to be able to do it fine.

Any one else have this issue?

At 16:10 aspect ratio that extra 1/9th would leave an app the option of having those button left intact when playing 16:9 video.

A single/double tap often hides them too.

Yeah I know the aspect ratio/res is a little different on the nook and it is still showing full video but just cant seem to get them to disappear as they do on nexus and in netflix etc.

I just find the extra black at the bottom annoying and tried all manner of taps but to no avail, maybe just a nook thing.

Did you try VLC ?

That is also useful for playing streams outside of the browser, as it keeps a recent stream list.

Just maybe this is the final clearance but it is now down to 129 in most places.
It is certainly is the best indoor tablet by far barring the Nexus 10 and Ipad Retina.

The new Nexus 7 should win for games(speed) but for general use this bigger tablet wins out.
The lower resolution 1440 x 900 7" Nook HD is 79 for amazing portable value.

And in stock at John Lewis for a free JLCare 2 year warranty.
