I noticed that Silk can play YouTube videos, and they don't seem to be embedded. Worth investigating whether we can access the built-in video player rather than using ours.

We can't access the Silk player. We should use our own or just play the videos in Firefox itself.

For the record:

"For supported video formats, instead of embedding playback in the browser, Silk opens an Android player activity."

If we knew what that was, it'd be a useful arrow in our quiver. I tried to find out, but failed.
