I recently put this XAML together -- it shows animating a MediaElement with a ScaleTransform, kind of a cool effect watching the video expand from a tiny circle to full size.

   <MediaElement.Clip>
    <EllipseGeometry Center="300, 150" RadiusX="150" RadiusY="150" />
   </MediaElement.Clip>
   <MediaElement.RenderTransform>
    <ScaleTransform Center="250,200" ScaleX=".1" ScaleY=".1"/>
   </MediaElement.RenderTransform>
  </MediaElement>
