JavaFX Media issues

I am having a look at JavaFX media support and have a couple of questions:

1. It seems that the only way to load media files is by specifying a source
such as a file path etc.  This is not going to work well for me as all of
my application's content (which includes data, digital assets, media etc.)
is stored in a database on the server and is loaded through an IO stream.
 Why doesn't Media support loading of files through a stream?  That would
seem like a common use case to me!

2. I am unable to locate any reference to JavaFX Media in the JavaDocs for
JDK 8 which I found here:

Is this just a glitch?

3. Is buffering of media something planned for the future in JavaFX?

4. What about live streaming of media content?
