large play icon displayed when pausing a video

Not sure where to post comments about the web (arlo.netgear.com) Looks like the library section got updated on 2/1. During full screen playback, the big pause icon needs to disappear much quicker. It's blocking first 2 seconds of playback. When I pause the video to get a closer look, the play icon bolcks the middle of the video. Ideally, don't put the play icon and pause icon in the middle of the video at all. 

I do like how some of the info are displayed on screen as well as the dark background during playback.

Re: large play icon displayed when pausing a video

What platform are you on? I don't see any pause symbol at all on Win7Pro running Chrome but I definitely appreciate what you're saying about the play symbol. If you pause to inspect the frame, there's a big play icon in a bigger circle right in the middle. I wonder if this should be added to the Ideas Exchange section. I guess the workaround would be a download the clip and view it in VLC but what a pain

I just tried this using both Firefox and Chrome with W10 and also don't see the problem although this is the second post that has mentioned this issue. Need more details.

I can see the issue in my own library.  If I'm watching a video and decide to pause it, a giant "PLAY" arrow is directly in the center of the screen. It doesn't fade away.  If you are playing a video, it's not there.

When pausing the video, the Play icon is displayed. I will find out if this is behaving as designed.
