Support For VisualBrush In WinRT
In WPF we could use a VisualBrush to display a MediaElement's video elsewhere in our application. Now this has been taken away the only way I've found to keep a video running from page to page is to reset the source and position on a new MediaElement as removing it from the VisualTree and placing it somewhere else causes it to refresh itself. This leads to a noticeable gap in playback and gives the impression of a poor performing App. In my opinion this is worse than the performance reasons for removing the VisualBrush in the first place.
