    There are some gotchas with video in this release:
    --It requires Windows Media Player 10 be installed on the machine.
    --It only plays .wma and .wmv files.
    --It requires the latest video drivers for most video cards. (For sure on ATI Radeon 9600/9700, which is what I have.)
    --There is very little documentation.
    Here's a simple file you can put into XAMLPad to see it working:
    <Grid xmlns="" >
       <MediaElement Name="myVideo" Source="C:\WINDOWS\system32\oobe\images\intro.wmv" Stretch="Fill" />
