in thread Getting all Headers

I use LWP::UserAgent version 2.036 from distribution libwww-perl-5.808. The method progress was added since libwww-perl-5.806. Upgrade your version and try again. I wonder however my code runs at all with libwww-perl-5.805 (that included LWP::UA 2.033 which didn't provide method progress yet).

Update: How stupid of me. My code runs with LWP::UA 2.033 because the method progress isn't called at all

    I upgraded and succeeded to make this work, unfortunately this method does not bring the result I need using headers_as_string.
    I will give you an example:
    has a video inside.
    There is no direct link to this video in the HTML source, the location will only be sent within the headers.
    Using LWP::UserAgent with method progress does not bring this URL which is as follows (from LiveHTTPheaders-log, snippet from header): GET /media/96/4efec90e3f12d631b4f5b490db152596.flv HTTP/1.1 Host: ...
    Would it be possible to get the "host"-information and URL of the video from the headers using LWP or do I have to use another module or method?
