WMPlayer SDK

I am using the Windows Media Player 9.0 SDK with my C# application.  When my application opens, it opens a specific audio file for playback.  My problem is that I am having a hard time trying to get the duration information from the Media Player until I actually start playing the file.  I start by setting the Player's URL(axPlayer.url = audiofile).  After that I can access axPlayer.currentMedia.duration, but the values are all 0 until I actually call axPlayer.Ctlcontrols.play().  Is there any way I can access the duration of the media file from the player without having to start the file playing??????????

Thanks,
Kendal

Thanks for the link.  It was very interesting.  I found a solution for my answer in the following form:

IWMPMedia media = axPlayer.newMedia(FinalFile);
endTime = (int)Math.Floor(media.duration);

If I create an actual IWMPMedia object instead of trying to access it through the Player object itself, I can access the duration property.  Thanks for your answer.

Thanks,
Kendal
