I'm a student and I use Panopto to view lectures created by my instructors. I'd like to have the option of minimizing the sidebar within the browser page, because it simply gets in the way of the video, particularly when I resize the browser to anything other than a 16:9 aspect ratio. By default the sidebar is often taking up 1/3 of the screen, and in cases where the window gets resized, display of this sidebar is prioritized over displaying the video, meaning that the sidebar can occupy 2/3 of the window.
Additionally if there were an option to pop the video out of the window, or to use a "Theater Mode", similar to Youtube's, then the ability to focus on the video and the video alone could be increased, if the user so desires.
