Media API question regarding metadata retrieval

I was a bit surprised that the metadata retrieval functionality
of is only usable in conjunction with a player, so
if I want to retrieve the dimensions of a video file I have to instantiate
a player and wait for it to reach ready state? That's how I read the
javadoc. Is this a misunderstanding? If not is there a specific reason not
to offer this functionality independently of a player?

Best regards,
