I dunno, mine goes away but the second I hit the mouse it comes back. Quite annoying. I try not to use it much, and when I do, I don't use full screen much, so, it's not that annoying. Free bump for you.

I usually have the opposite problem, getting it to reappear in full screen mode.
You should be able to minimize it and it will stay away.

move the mouse into the video box and let go of the mouse
it should autohide on its own
mine does.

If nothing works then use Media Player Classic. Plays even real media files too
