There's no need to if the playback source can provide lots of data 
quickly and in advance. However, a network stream source is much more 
un-reliable, so knowing how much data is ready for playback would be 
nice. (Even nicer would be to know whether the output device did run out 
of data.)

Currently, my incoming buffers are empty most times, with an unknown 
amount of playback data in several hidden buffers. As a workaround, my 
remuxer doesn't get new data until Get() returns Count=0. But there are 
enough other buffers left...
