Subject: RE: Idea for resume on startup / bookmart / etc

RE: Idea for resume on startup / bookmart / etc

I ideally like to 'rewind' a little after pause/play when fadeout is
enabled. If I am listening to an audiobook, and get interrupted, pressing
pause then play again means you can miss quite a lot of narrative, so in
addition to a time setting of N seconds as suggested below, an option of
fade*2 (or whatever) would be useful...

|Hey folks,
|
|I had a feature idea that I wanted to bounce off people.
|
|Let's assume that you either bookmark a playing file or stop the player
|and turn it off.
|
|It can logically be assumed that time passes.
|
|Would it be nice to have an option where, when you either resume
|playback on startup or play back from a bookmark point, that rockbox
|automagically backs up N seconds (or N% of a total length, seconds), to
|"give you context".
|
|My scenario is that I listen to a lot of podcasts and have resume
|playback on startup enabled. The problem is, I kind of "forget where I
|was" and 10 seconds of what I've already listened to would get my head
|back to remembering what they were talking about.
|
|Anyone else think this is a worthwhile idea?
