"If the media does not support seek operations, setting this property will have no effect on media playback."
What media do and do not support seek operations ?

since i think that mediaelement is built on top of media player, i believe that the some principles used for playing videos and music on are true for this element too. There are several reasons that might disable seeking when you open a file on media player. this link mentions some:

I am not sure it is true that the MediaElement support is based on WMP, since there is a from-scratch implementation for Mac.
I am particularly interested in being able to seek using HTTP "Range: bytes=" headers, in case anyone can answer this question authoritatively.

yes, maybe i'm wrong since...however, there really is a media player version for mac:
maybe someone from the team will be able to give more info on this.

There are certain conditions under which setting the Position will not take effect, such as setting the Position on a MediaElement that doesn't have a Source, or attempting to seek a playlist entry in an ASX file that has ClientSkip="False". Otherwise, seeking is always expected to work. All of the media formats supported in Silverlight allow seeking.
