After setting a source on a MediaPlayer element, it switches through the following states:
0 - NoMedia
1 - LoadingMedia
2 - LoadedMedia
5 - BufferedMedia
Until reaching the BufferedMedia state, the main thread remains frozen and the GUI does not update.
I was trying to create a "buffering/loading" animation expecting this process to be asynchronous, but that does not seem to be the case. Also the property 'autoLoad' does not seem to exist anymore which looked like it might control some aspect of this behavior.
