when i click on the video thumbnail I want the video to show above the play list instead of opening a pop up.
This is a common option for other video players (especially on WordPress). One example of this is the plugin YotuWP (see attached image). We get around this by using two widgets (one for a larger featured video and one for the videos below). That's a very clunky solution and doesn't really get us what we want.
