Bugs in WmfMedia Plugin
1) Playback is truncated when using a MediaPlayer with an http URL. This is due to a bug in WmfMediaSession where it explicitly stops the session when it receives the MEEndOfPresentation event. However this event means that that all data has been read from the source but not necessarily played yet. According to the documentation, playback is done when the MESessionEnded event is sent.
2) In our configuration the MediaPlayer URL has request parameters. The WmfMedia module checks file extensions to determine if it supports the media type. However that code doesn't handle URLs with request parameters. And presumably it should check the mime-type rather than the file extension in such cases.
I fixed the issue with MEEndOfPresentation today in GitHub commit.
The issue with the URLs not being handled correctly in the WmfMedia plug-in was fixed about a month ago in GitHub commit.
I started implementing asynchronous media source resolving using the Begin/End functions, but it got a little more involved than I expected, and I'm not sure if I'll be able to finish it this week due to other tasks I need to work on. I will post an update here when it's done.
As for the Blueprint related suggestions, I will look into those, but most likely not before September.

I have shared this information with our developers and we actually ask that if users are apt enough to make changes they can do so through GitHub, as this feature is open source.
We also have another Media Player plugin that is open source you could take a look at as well. It is also still in its early stages, so there are some issues with its playback but it has a wider range of video compatibility.
Take a look at our GitHub to submit a pull request to integrate the changes you want to make to the Media Player feature. You seem to have a good handle on what needs to be changed in order to improve the functionality of the feature, and we appreciate you taking the time to communicate these issues to us.
