Your desktop web video player is aweful

Let me list what's wrong with your video player on my 1366px-wide laptop :

1. It's too tall to fit on my screen in height.
2. I have to scroll down to get to the controls.
3. I can't read the synopsis while watching a trailer any more.
4. It autoplays the video, which is bad in itself, but also means that the video starts muted (yep, browsers don't let you autoplay videos with sound these days).
5. It autoplays other videos at the end without warning and without any way to disable it like on YouTube.
6. It autoplays other videos at the end that are completely unrelated to the current video.
7. Once you scroll down to get to the controls, you have to scroll back up to find the back button.
8. This is not new, but there's no way to pick the playback quality and it doesn't seem to be smart enough to adjust the quality based on network speed.
