Enables loading, playing and controlling media files via the HTML5 MediaElement API. This is used internally by the vime-audio and vime-video components, which are the preferred components to use for loading file-based media.

You don't interact with this component for passing player properties, controlling playback, listening to player events and so on, that is all done through the vime-player component.
