Is there any method of showing what percentage of a VLC player clip in VB.NET has buffered in a label?

For further clarification:
What I'm wanting, is to show what percentage of a clip has been buffered into a label. I am viewing this clip in VLC within VB.NET

Code so far below:

Imports System.Text.RegularExpressions
    Public Class Form1
        Dim Paused As Boolean = False
        Dim Started As Boolean = False
        Dim PlayedSecond As Boolean = True
        Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
            PlayedSecond = False
            Started = True
        End Sub
        Sub playsecond()
            PlayedSecond = True
            Started = False
        End Sub
        Private Sub AxVLCPlugin21_pause(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles AxVLCPlugin21.pause
            Paused = True
        End Sub
        Private Sub IsFinished_Tick(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles IsFinished.Tick
            If Not AxVLCPlugin21.playlist.isPlaying And Paused = False And Started = True And PlayedSecond = False Then
                Started = True
            End If
        End Sub
        Private Sub AxVLCPlugin21_play(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles
            Paused = False
        End Sub
        Private Enum InputState
            IDLE = 0
            OPENING = 1
            BUFFERING = 2
            PLAYING = 3
            PAUSED = 4
            STOPPING = 5
            ENDED = 6
            ERRORSTATE = 7
        End Enum
        Private Sub InfoTimer_Tick(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles InfoTimer.Tick
            Dim state As InputState = DirectCast(AxVLCPlugin21.input.state, InputState)
            Select Case state
                Case InputState.IDLE, InputState.OPENING, InputState.BUFFERING
                    Status.Text = state.ToString()
                    Exit Select
                Case InputState.PLAYING
                    Dim title As String = System.IO.Path.GetFileName(AxVLCPlugin21.mediaDescription.title)
                    Dim current As TimeSpan = TimeSpan.FromMilliseconds(AxVLCPlugin21.input.Time)
                    Dim total As TimeSpan = TimeSpan.FromMilliseconds(AxVLCPlugin21.input.Length)
                    Dim pos As Double = AxVLCPlugin21.input.Position
                    Status.Text = String.Format("{0} {1} {2}:{3:D2}/{4}:{5:D2} {6:P}", state, title, current.Minutes, current.Seconds, total.Minutes, total.Seconds, pos)
                    Exit Select
                Case InputState.PAUSED
                    Status.Text = String.Format("{0} {1}", state, System.IO.Path.GetFileName(AxVLCPlugin21.mediaDescription.title))
                    Exit Select
                Case InputState.STOPPING, InputState.ENDED
                    Exit Select
                Case InputState.ERRORSTATE
                    Status.Text = String.Format("{0} {1}", state, AxVLCPlugin21.mediaDescription.title)
                    Exit Select
                Case Else
                    Status.Text = state.ToString()
                    Exit Select
            End Select
        End Sub
    End Class

I'm looking for someone to show me how to do it. The code above doesn't do that, that's why I've came here.
