is it possible to add any kind of Image/Video/Audio effects on subclasses of MediaElement? Like PixelBender-Effects for Images or what I'm looking for is a backgroundAlpha - property like the VideoDisplay-Component provides in Flex. I want to work with Videos which provides a alpha-channel. But can't find a way to work with alpha-channel in OSMF. I can't find any properties like that in VideoElement class.
Given that effects generally apply to a DisplayObject, it should just be a matter of getting to the VideoElement's DisplayObject and applying the effect (or passing it to an object that can apply the effect). The simplest way to get to a VideoElement's DisplayObject is to hand it to a MediaPlayer and query MediaPlayer.displayObject. (You can also access it through the VideoElement's DisplayObjectTrait.)
Thanks Brian, I played a bit with the DisplayObject. What I get is a Video Object. But I cant't find any possiblity to access the alpha channel of the Video Object. Do you know a workaround for that?
