javascript – YouTube iframe Embeds: participant keep watch over overlay caught because of lacking touch-up tournament

I’m using the YouTube iframe player inline in an iOS App with a WkWebView. When I close the App it sometimes happens that the player control bar at the bottom gets stuck and no longer disappears.

This seems to happen whenever I tab and hold on the player and then close the app without lifting my finger (this can be triggered accidentally by the swipe-up-to-close-app-gesture), I’m assuming this happens due to the touch-up event not happening on the player. Other than killing the App, no amount of taps/swipes afterwards makes the player overlay become unstuck again.

Is there anything I can do to hide the overlay manually or reset something about the js events that would help it get unstuck? Thanks 🙂
