I only use the modal dialog thingy in jQuery UI, which displays when the player is not currently playing. I'm not big on the DOM and so it would have taken me a lifetime to figure out how to do this on my own, as compared to the 5 minutes to install jQuery UI and invoke it.
The JQuery libraries are embedded in my home page that allow my site to be viewed the way I want them to.
We fully integrate it into the framework and also supply a nice theme.
