Is the 'switchTo' method within MediaPlayer fully implemented so that we may stream and buffer multiple videos? This would be similar to the older FLVPlayback Component.
(This question comes from a customer. Reposting here for the OSMF team to respond and for the benefit of the whole group.)

The switchTo method is intended for switching between different (bitrate) representations of the same media file. Currently supported implementations include multibitrate (MBR) streaming over RTMP and (soon) HTTP. As to your use case, I'd need to know a bit more about what you mean by streaming and buffering multiple videos. Are you referring to MBR playback, or to playing and presenting multiple videos all at once, or to playing multiple videos at once but only presenting one (i.e. toggling the active video)?
