FIX: Replaced VLC event.u occurrences

Newer versions of python-vlc have apparently
removed the `event.u` union object from the
events dispatched by the player, resulting in
player callback failures.

The occurrences of `event.u` have therefore
been replaced with the player methods to
correctly retrieve the current state.
