Video player and buffering

I'm trying to display a spinner over the top of the last known good video frame in the player if it has to start buffering during playback. However, by the time I get notified that the video player has changed state to be "buffering", the player itself is just displaying a black screen.

Is there a way that I can tell the player to not go black, and instead display whatever the last frame it has?
