We are working on a WinJS video application and providing closed-captioning via dfxp files. Currently, we are just using the native styling settings from the Internet Options menu.

It appears the placement of captioning is percentage based, when videos are in fullscreen, captions appear great. However, when we have the video out of fullscreen, captions are partially obscured by the video control bar.

We also have instances where any additional lines of captioning get clipped (2 or more lines of captioning).

Is there a work around for this or a way to position the native styling further from the bottom of the video as well as prevent any clipping of captioning text?
