Hello I've just noticed that video.setPosition() function is not much usable more than once at a time, probably because it examines the file for getTotalNumFrames every time, which is expensive.
What about some kind of lookup table to store TotalFrames for each video?
Anyway, this is not an important suggestion because it can be done easily with video.setFrame() and video.getTotalNumFrames()

i think the way that video.setPosition() works on different platforms varies a lot, and we should keep experimenting on a per-platform basis rather than trying to solve this in the general case.
