Member nameDescription
ClosedThe MediaElement contains no media. The MediaElement displays a transparent frame.
OpeningThe MediaElement is validating and attempting to open the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) specified by its Source property. While in this state, the MediaElement queues any Play, Pause, or Stop commands it receives and processes them if the media is successfully opened.
IndividualizingThe MediaElement is in the process of ensuring that proper individualization components (only applicable when playing DRM protected content) are installed on the user's computer. See Digital Rights Management (DRM) for Windows Phone 8 for more information.
AcquiringLicenseThe MediaElement is acquiring a license required to play DRM protected content. Once OnAcquireLicense has been called, the MediaElement will remain in this state until SetLicenseResponse has been called.
BufferingThe MediaElement is loading the media for playback. Its Position does not advance during this state. If the MediaElement was already playing video, it continues to display the last displayed frame.
PlayingThe MediaElement is playing the media specified by its source property. Its Position advances forward.
PausedThe MediaElement does not advance its Position. If the MediaElement was playing video, it continues to display the current frame.
StoppedThe MediaElement contains media but is not playing or paused. Its Position is 0 and does not advance. If the loaded media is video, the MediaElement displays the first frame.
