JWPlayer getDuration() returns 0

I am trying to get the duration of an HLS video. From the documentation, I could understand that the getDuration() method returns the duration. But what I get is 0 as the response. I want to get the duration on loading the player(before the video starts running). Is there any solution for this?

There’s no way for us to know the duration of the video without loading it.
