Best Practice with Player object to determine audio or video

the mediaTYpes property returns tracks (and the documentation doesn't 
say whether the list is cr delimited or comma delimited, but that is a 
docs issue)

Are you saying that for example if (the mediaTypes of player X contains 
"audio" and not (the mediaTypes of player X contains "video")) is 
definitely an audio only media file? and conversely if (the mediaTypes 
contains "video") it is a video media file?
If not media file has been set for the player, what does "the 
mediaTypes" return (once again, the documentation doesn't say!)

Is this an approach you have coded and used?
