MediaPlayer.PlayPosition should be able to be set
If my users want to move through a song a little bit, there is no way to do that, as MediaPlayer.PlayPosition is read only! Should be able to set it.

This is essential functionality of any mediaplayer. I cannot quite understand why it isn't already possible as it would open up lots of doors.

As with others, I want to play audiobooks, audio drama, recorded radio programs, all of which I want to resume from where I left off. Windows Phone fails in not letting me do this.

I am seeking for a way to play audiobooks on the device and it seems impossible to create audiobook app without seek/setposition. PLEASE do implement this.
Yes! This is probably the reason that the built-in music player lacks a scrubber. But how was the built-in player able to implement the fast-forward and rewind (i.e. by long pressing the skip buttons) if there is no way to seek within a song?
