Swift: how to set up an audio session that gracefully mixes with others (aka Pod

Question!

This code snippet makes the other audio (aka iPod) to stop:

func setSessionPlayer() {

    var audioSessionError: NSError?
    let audioSession = AVAudioSession.sharedInstance()

    audioSession.setActive(true, error: nil)

    if audioSession.setCategory(AVAudioSessionCategoryPlayback, withOptions:AVAudioSessionCategoryOptions.MixWithOthers,
        error: &audioSessionError) {
            println("Successfully set the audio session")
    } else {
        println("Could not set the audio session")
    }

}

What am I missing?

if audioSession.setCategory(AVAudioSessionCategoryPlayback, withOptions:AVAudioSessionCategoryOptions.MixWithOthers,
    error:
