Yes, I was interpreting the change as the UA not firing video events if the UA was providing video controls. Thanks for the clarification.

I think this suggestion would limit valuable use cases. For example, a
remote control page running on a separate device would need these events,
even if the UA is providing UI on the main screen.


I think you're misunderstanding the change. This change simply makes sure that the browser does not throw general user interaction events while the user is interacting with the video, because the user interaction with the video already has effects and raises events. This just avoids duplicate event raising, where JavaScript would, for example, react to a click event on the video, as well as a click event on the play button, thus doubly executing a pause_play_toggle function. This also applies to your remote control example, FAICT.

HTH,
Silvia.
