Show pages with navigation over playing video

Is it possible to have pages overlapping a video that is constantly playing? I mean, I have been able to create a Page that auto plays a video and now, I need to show another page over the video and I also need to use the Navigation stack to push/pop between the pages that I want to show over the same video.

Can, for example, the MasterDetail page help on this (having the video inside the Master and the pages inside the Detail)? I have a client that requires this and I really need an idea to make it.

Thanks.

    I created a video player component for Xamarin Forms. You can hook into video events (playing, paused, stopped, completed, etc.) and control player operations all from shared code.

    There is an example application called Chill Player packaged with the component that has a video background for the main menu as shown below...
