Is this a regression from bug 1065076? Ray, can you look into this?

I can not reproduce this on LG G2 (Android 6). Perhaps it is a tablet only issue, but I don't have other devices in hand. 

:sorina, could you provide me a screenshot? Thanks

That's YouTube's own UI. Maybe break by a Platform change?
Blake, could this be a platform problem like Tim mentioned?

I have no idea that any platform change can cause this problem. 
Let's set regressionwindow-wanted and narrow down the root cause.

Can you help check which version starts to have this problem?

I can see this problem on my ASUS Transformer Pad with released version (Firefox 47) on Android 4.4.2. 
So it seems this problem has existed for a while.
Tested using Asus Transformer Pad (Android 4.4.2) and Asus ZenPad 8 (Android 5.0.2).
I've tried to find a regression-window but I was unable to check on a build older than Nightly from 2013-06-01.
 On all the builds I was able to test the speaker button is not displayed near full-screen button.

Thanks for your help. 
I think it would be better to ask Youtube to help check what happens since it is their player.
blake: So this is solely in YouTube's control here?

Mike: Is this something for webcompat?

I have asked Youtube and they said it is intended and on mobile web UI controls are sometimes removed so as not to compete with device-level functionality. Please check the mail I forwarded to you. 

I tested it on my tablet and speaker button does not show up on their Chrome on mobile either.

Thanks! So this is working as intended (by YouTube).
