Pony Request: Stop the Youtube inline player from re-centering itself on a scaled up page on an ipad. The Close link is unavailable when the player is scaled up, and won't work.

Hi! It seems like the only time I ever use Metatalk is to ask for things. Sorry about that. Anyway.
I have mobility/vision issues. And I use an ipad almost exclusively. Here's my issue:
I need to scale up the screen when reading posts. I also really like to watch Youtube videos. When I have the screen scaled up, and I use the inline YT player, the player opens on a layer that is centered vertically. Unfortunately, when the player is scaled up with the rest of the page, the Close link is below the boundary of the screen. Scrolling the window up won't allow you to use the link, because it snaps back to its original position.
My request: Stop the inline player from snapping back, so that the scrolled page stays and I can click the link.
There are ways I can get around this, of course - double tap the screen so that the page goes back to the original scale (which would be okay except that my ability to double-tap is sometimes affected by speed, and sometimes by accuracy), and pinch-zooming can work, but is not easy when using two hands - I can't move my fingers well enough to pinch-zoom very well, so it's a two-fingered approach at best.
I know it's a weird little pony, but then again, so am I. I appreciate any help you can offer.
