I would like a way to make mpegplayer bookmark where you last stop the video and save this data to a file so that when you are ready to continue you can resume video from last stopped position. I would do this patch myself but i'm and infant at programming.
This task depends upon

A good idea, but maybe this should wait until we're at a position to build video playback into the main playback engine (when this sort of thing would hopefully come for free)?

Doesn't this sort of overlap with the idea of the resume feature which already exists on a per-file basis?

Hi guys, I have installed the rockbox in my sansa e280 (v1) but I would like to know how to patch it, to resume the mpegplayer, when you watch long videos. I appreciate a lot, if you could to provide a clear example to do it. Thanks :)
