Playback controls separated from video when container portrait/snapped mode.

When aspect ratio of player container is markedly different from 4:3 or 16:9, i.e., portrait mode, or snapped to side, the playback controls are snapped to the bottom of the container, with the video in the middle of the container.  The taller the container is with respect to the width of the video, the farther away the playback controls are from the player.

It would be nice to have the controls always overlay on the bottom of the video, or appear just below the video when space is available.

If you set VerticalAlignment="Center" (or top or bottom) on the MediaPlayer it will accomplish this because it won't try to fill the vertical space of the container.
