    remembering position within saved playlist?

    I'd love to see something like this. I have an audio version
    of the Bible too, and oddly enough, have never thought about
    copying it over to my computer to listen through the squeezebox.
    Doh!

    I've got a lot of audio books that I listen to with my kids, and
    I've broken almost all of them up into chapters as the tracks,
    but sometimes I find that's not enough of a break. So, we either
    stop when we're not quite ready to or we go just a little too
    long. Being able to bookmark an audio file within slim would
    be awesome.

    What would be nice is that if you selected a track to play, slim
    could ask if you'd like to resume playing from the point you
    left off with. Maybe a prompt when you hit stop (hold pause,
    I know) that will bookmark anything that is played.

    It may be annoying, but then again, maybe a power-off
    would cause the bookmark to not be made, while a pause
    then power off would

    Jeff - are you going to enter an enhancement into
    bugs.slimdevices.com? I'll make some comments there
    once you get it posted.

    Jeff,

    This is a good idea. How long is each track though? We would probably

    need to save not only the track # but also the position within the
    track.

    BTW I am an expert on psalm 119; Blessed are the undefiled in the way
    etc. I was graciously invited to copy it by hand on many occasions by
    my English headmaster.

    Also, two girls (that is, 50% of the school's female population) had
    the privilege of doing the entire book of Genesis but I never found out

    exactly what they did to deserve it.

    do plugins count, or does everything have to be a core feature?
    also, I believe that is already an enhancement request for several items to be
    stored with the playlist, including volume, sorting, and repeat settings. You
    may want to have thos mumped together. Likely they have the same solution.

    remembering position within saved playlist?

    A feature request related (I think) to this thread:

    a player setting that would change the pause button to
    pause at the end of the current track
    pause now if a pause is pending
    resume if paused
    In this mode play cancels a pending pause if playing.

    I want to "pause" the playlist, not the track. Visual indication of
    pending pause on the display and web would be nice also.

    Opinions?
