The 'Buffering' Visual State doesn't appear when the MediaPlayer is buffering

During our tests, it appears as though the Buffering Visual State is not being correctly enter by the MediaPlayer because the MediaElement is never reporting buffering during play back.

This seems to be a problem with the Windows Phone 8 player, not the Metro player.

We're using v1.1 of the Player Framework, this problem was also present in the previous separate versions.

b33rdy, are you using smooth streaming or progressive download? I just ran some quick tests in the emulator and am seeing the currentstate change to buffering for progressive but not smooth and would like to confirm this is the same as what you're seeing before passing this issue along to the smooth team.

Thanks for reporting this!

Tim, we believe this is a MediaElement / MSS bug, as it affects our HLS MSS implementation as well as Smooth. I'll contact you directly to discuss further.
