Yes, you should be using playlist to resume a bookmark because the mpeg code
queries the playlist code to determine what to play. IMO, what you should
be saving in your bookmark is _exactly_ the same information that we save
for resume purposes.
int resume_index; /* index in playlist (-1 for no active resume) */
int resume_offset; /* byte offset in mp3 file */
int resume_seed; /* random seed for playlist shuffle */
int resume_first_index; /* first index of playlist */
int queue_resume; /* resume queue file?: 0 = no
1 = resume at queue index
2 = resume at playlist index */
int queue_resume_index; /* queue index (seek point in queue file) */
unsigned char resume_file[MAX_PATH+1]; /* playlist name (or dir) */
Then, to resume a bookmark, all you need to do is what is done in
