Hi All,

I am running into an issue regarding viewing youtube videos using 1.0.4 & JVLC. I noticed that if I try to get the video length using mediaPlayer.getLength() right after play has started the video may report 0 length or crash. Can the length of a video for youtube videos be determined without playing it first using the mediaPlayer object? The same question would be important for vidoes viewed via http.
