Mine can't even jump / drag / swipe forward/backward or tap (that horizontal line below Play Pause button) to a specific time frame to skip
Am I the only one having this issue :(

This functionality just proves how off base Microsoft is when it comes to Music and Videos. It's so strange that it's not intuitive. Frankly, I feel the music app is the weakest part of the platform. Luckily, these issues can be so easily fixed. In this day and age, the code could be fixed in days and published in a few weeks. Common Microsoft, lets get on the ball. This is a really big deal.

First post in this forum. I bought a L820 about two weeks ago, moving from an ancient iPhone 3G. I am amazed at how lacking the media player is! I mean, you can't even move the track manually (by hand)! It can't put automatic placeholders, so when I resume listening to a podcast that I took a break from, I have to try and remember roughly where I was when I left off AND STILL hold the fforward button down!
There are other things, but this is the most annoying being the heavy podcast listener that I am. For all the pomp and spectacle of WP8, you would think that it would have these incredibly basic features out the box. I've had bootleg iPods from Hong Kong from 7 years ago that handled music better!
Please, someone tell me that I'm missing something. There's gotta be an update on the way, right?

Press Volume up-down hard key once,
After the information tittle drops downs from the top, hold the forward button there to forward/rewind track.
It's sucks maybe MS will do something about it in coming time.
We won't see VLC for WP8 before May this year.

Thank you everyone who responded. On the bright side I can now play and download podcasts exactly how I like by using Wpodder. It's unfortunate, though, that it took a 3rd party to make an app that MS should have made themselves. Why do I get the feeling like this is going to be a reoccurring theme?
pdskep: Yes, it's unfortunate that MS dropped the ball so blatantly with the music player. What's worse is that they don't seem to care about amending it. I really wanted to support WP8, but I'm also going to have to be honest to others about how insulting some aspects of it are.
