Videolan vlc player

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Recently I began to use VLC to watch videos but I can't find a very important feature: remember the position where the movie has been stopped and the program has been closed.

Does anyone know if there is setting, a modification or a trick to do this?

I have seen that there are the bookmarks but this doesn't works because when you close the program all the bookmarks are erased.

Thank you very much.

I don't know of any way to do this. I just write down the time on a sticky note :)

VLC plays everything and it's great for those obscure codecs, but if you install FlipforMac and Perian, I've found that will let you play about 95% of everything but VOB files in Quicktime ( and thus in Frontrow also ). But come to think of it, does Quicktime remember the last playing point either? I don't think so.

It's also annoying that yje Leopard version of Front Row - which presumably uses the QuickTime engine to render video - lost this feature. The cyan progress bar is ugly too - very un-Apple. I must use their Feedback service to complain about these matters - though I often wonder whether that's akin to pissing in the wind.

I haven't noticed that feature in VLC, but there is a VLC variant called Movist that does offer that feature.

Nice find Adam. I smell a topic for a show ... Quicktime and Frontrow alternatives.

Ask and you shall receive. Just listened o the newest MacCast and Adam highlighted this topic and the sandbox topic.

 

Thanks, Adam.
