Default [Question] Suppress system bars like MX Player

MX Player does a tremendous job of locking the application - it is not possible to expand the notification bar, nor is it possible to press the navigation item.

This thread covers a lot of the basics, but it is not nearly as good as MX Player.

A demonstration:


How does MX Player achieve this?

Good question. I assume you mean more of a lock than Android 4.4's "Immersive Mode", ie the actual MX "Lock" feature. @bleu8888 is the main developer, so he could answer this.

Yeah exactly. The immersive mode does not lock the app, as you can swipe from top to bottom to get to the notification bar.
I've linked to a youtube url in the OP, here is the full link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BH0HXP-Z4z4
This will make it clear
It would be great if @bleu8888 could shed some light on this.
