I just want the Media Player team to be replaced by a team that A) isn't invisible and B) knows what the hell they are doing. If I get that stupid "Could not connect to server" message again after waiting for five minutes when double clicking a video on my desktop, I'm going to punch a small child in the face.

It's now been over 12 years since we've had active/live scrubbing in Quicktime player for Windows.

WMP12 still uses the old "Video for Windows 3.11"-style scrubbing.

YouTube, Vimeo, iOS, all support active scrubbing.

Why, Microsoft, WHY?!?
