I won't be estimating the duration - the user experience of a
fluctuating duration is terrible. For now for Ogg files, I'm seeking
to the end and getting the duration. For the few servers that don't
support seeking, duration is not available. I may check for
X-Content-Duration which I believe mod_annodex and soon oggz-chop
