[vlc-devel] python bindings - get_media_position

Hello all,

I am trying to use vlc through the python bindings. It seems that,
using the newapi, get_media_position doesn't give the correct position
after having seeked backwards.
For example: play a video up to point b, then seek back to point a
(thus a < b). While the actual playing video is between a and b
get_media_position returns b, instead of the actual position. After
having passed point b get_media_position returns the correct value.

I guess the new api is still work in progress. What is the right way
to retrieve the current position through the old api?

I can't find useful docs on the old api, are there any docs? Or can
someone point me the location in the source where I can find info on
the old api.

btw. this was in version 0.8.6a
