[ogg-dev] Finding out the duration of an Ogg stream

I'm developing a Java Ogg media player applet and I have encountered a
problem while creating a progress bar. I need to know how long, in
samples or seconds, the Ogg stream that I'm playing is, and I need to
know it before I have downloaded the entire stream. Problem is, I don't
see how I could do that.
I could provide a "duration" argument, but that would make using my
player quite messy, as the web masters would have to use a script to
check the numbers of samples everytime they want to add an Ogg file.
Do you know a way that I could get around this somehow? Maybe some
header data that I have missed?
If not, what is the easiest way to check the numbers of samples?
Thank you so much in advance!
