Exiting Browser Widget

I can't test this on mobile right now, but I _think_ you can set up a send
loop in the background checking every 40 millisec or so and to check if
there is a touch. If there is, adjust the rect of the browser widget to
allow a header bar to show with your control.  As a widget on mobile, the
rect is whatever you set it to right?

A feature request might be to implement browserclick so that it works with
the widget.

If you want to go the iframe way you might also look here:
https://developers.google.com/youtube/iframe_api_reference#Getting_Started
and adjust things so that you can register javascript handlers with lc. In
this way, you should be able to have lc know what is going on in the widget
(player stop, etc.  )
