Dual Monitor - New UI does not go away if the mouse goes off screen while video playing.

I have two monitors and I use PMP on my desktop quite a bit and I definitely hate the new UI for quite a few reasons but the biggest one is the fact that the UI does not go away when I move my mouse off screen to the second monitor because PMP still captures it or something idk.

UI just won't go away if the video is playing and I move the mouse to another monitor.

    I have this same problem. Also i used to be able to hover my mouse over the video and use the scroll wheel to change the volume. Now this only works if i position the mouse cursor directly over the volume bar.

    What do you mean by "the UI does not go away"? I'm fairly certain we didn't add any kind of mouse capturing behavior either.

    I place the plex media player window in my second monitor to the left. Start watching something, place it in fullscreen. I move my mouse cursor back into my main window to do something. The video controls never hide themselves. If i leave my mouse stationary in my second monitor they will hide themselves. The volume control by hovering over the video being played and using the scroll wheel would be great to have back again as well.

    Yeah it's just as selkie707 said, though I've now found out if you move your mouse fast enough to the other monitor it works fine and the controls hide themselves again but it wasn't like this before.

    And by mouse capture I didn't mean a literal capture, my mouse works fine, I just meant that the program doesn't seem to always detect that my mouse is on another screen and not just the edge of the screen that the program is on.
