Is there any way to get fullscreen playback on WP8.1 with themed controls and AdaptivePlugin subtitles? IsFullWindow would work if it wouldn't hide the subs. It also hides the controls, but we can change the state of IsFullWindow when user taps the player so it's not a problem. We do get the default controls by setting AreTransportControlsEnabled = true, but they're not an option. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be any public API for hiding the navigation keys.

Fullscreen is relevant for devices with soft navigation keys like Lumia 630. Not only are the navigation keys annoying, but there's also a thin green vertical band between the video and the navigation keys. That band is not there when IsFullWindow is true.
