One feature that I’ve been missing from mplayer for years and years is the ability to remember how far you’ve watched a movie. Like, if I’ve been watching a movie, but then I stop the movie because I want to watch a TV show, then mplayer doesn’t helpfully remember where you left off.
So I’ve added a totally trivial fix to mplayer that just records all the shows you’ve watched (and how far into the file you’ve watched them) to the ~/.mplayer.positions file.
This will save me several seconds per week, I bet.
The changes are probably not that useful as is, but if somebody wants to take this idea an add it to mplayer proper, then … that would be nice. Perhaps.
