    Hi,

    Under MP1, it's possible to resume a video on the last stopped point.

    Is it possible to ad this feature under MP2 for Videos and Audio ?

    Cheers.

    In general should be configurable depending on the MediaAspect.

    So for the VideoAspect it is definitely useful.
    I could imagine this being useful for audio files especially for audiobooks. Currently this MediaAspect does not exist, yet.

    In MP1 are also a few major design flaws, which should be kept in mind when developing something like that:

    • In case a message box is displayed:
      "Do you want to resume the video at 33:33 min?"
      " [YES] [NO]"
      Pressing Yes: Should resume the video.
      Pressing No: Should start the video from beginning.
      Pressing Close-Button in window or ESC on keyboard should not play the video at all. The user aborted the action.
    • There is another case when using playing live TV recordings:
      • Resume video at 33:33.
      • Play video from beginning.
      • Play video from Live position
    I've changed the resume window in MP1 to a ListMenu a few years ago, but iirc many community plugins still use the old yes, no dialog which starts playback even if pressing ESC.

    In second example you see that even the Yes/No dialog is not enough to display all available options, so for all resume dialogs (even without tv option) the menu should be considered to give the use a consistent look & feel.

    I would like to add, it would be nice if the mediaportal server would hold this information, so you can pause a video on one client then resume on another.

    Ok, thanks for the User Management tip - I now get what I would expect. Now all I have to do is to figure out how to make Auto Login do what it says on the tin. The only way to make it work is to manually log in each time. Any hints as to what I'm missing with the login system?
