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.
Thanks for taking the time to share this suggestion. This item has been around for a couple of versions of Visual Studio and we haven’t acted on it. Looking at the VS “15” plans, we’re not going to take action on this item, so we’re going to close it. If the suggestion is still relevant, please either take a look to see if there’s another suggestion that’s similar that you can vote on, or open a new suggestion.
