Question Hide mouse cursor when flash player is in fullscreen?


Elementary OS, firefox, flashplayer.

If I watch youtube videos on their official page then the mouse cursor automatically hide itself after some seconds. But if I watch it on other pages (and I do that a lot) then the mouse cursor isnt hiding. That is the problem.

First I thought that I could solve this with devilspie, because it can sense when the player is in fullscreen but I wasnt find a way to start a script from devilspie. What would start unclutter, the only way I know to hide the cursor.

Then I thought I could just write a script that would check in every 5 sec whether there is a flashplayer in fullscreen or not. But I couldn't figure it out how could I check that.

So here I am now after all. What now? How to continue?
