Ah.  That's particularly difficult with players, as they generally lose 
their image while the pointer tool is active.

You could cheat:  grab a screenshot of the player and place it on top 
and then hide the player when switching tool modes. That should let your 
drawing tools work without mucking up the apparent image.  When you 
resume browse mode just hide or discard the image and show the player again.
