Probably a question best addressed to Kaltura, then. My suspicion is
that they can't add the video functions to the element instance
automagically for the same reason Prototype can't, and so I bet they
have an equivalent to the $ function you need to pass the element
through before calling `play`. Just a guess, but since we know they
can't extend the element object via its prototype (because IE doesn't
allow that)...
