This is a great idea, hope to see this soon :-)

#6 Updated by Mattias Wadman over 9 years ago

Maybe this should be implemented using some kind of last play position meta data so it can be shared with a continue playback as last position feature

#7 Updated by Andreas Smas over 9 years ago

Yeah for all files there should be

  • Number of times played.
  • Last time played.

And for video files (i'm not sure this is necessary for audio files. Perhaps only for audio-books or similar)

  • Restart position.

But I guess the question is if the player should always restart right where you left it (unless you actually reached end of the file). Perhaps that's what most ppl want except my 2yr old son who just wants to see the first 10 minutes of everything over and over again.

#8 Updated by Claudio Mendes over 9 years ago

i think it should ask if we want to resume playback from where it was left or stopped last time...

#9 Updated by naa dada over 9 years ago

I think it's important that you can see if a file has been played, right next to the filename.

Number of times played: why? but then again why not :-)

Restart position is a great idea.

One could perhaps give files that have been playing a different text color?

#12 Updated by naa dada over 9 years ago

I have now tested the feature in the latest version of showtime and it works. But as it is now a movie have to be played 100% to the end, otherwise it does not count as if it has been played. Can you change it to 80% or 90% because I (and probably others) do not usually see the credits after the movie and therefore the movie does not appear as played.

I'm using version 3.3.61 on a PS3

#13 Updated by Andreas Smas over 9 years ago

I agree. I might even go so far to add an option in the video settings so you can adjust this yourself.

I guess it can default be on 90% or something.

I second this. ^^

Also, just a suggestion, how about letting the user manually mark the file(s) as "watched"?

One advantage of this is when the user happens to switch his player during watching a series and taking a long break in between. For example, I watched episode 1-12 on my laptop, then I can marked those episodes manually in Showtime; so several days later I can easily continue with episode 13 - the rest without having to experience "which episode did I watched up to again?" every time I take a relatively long break.

This would be great :-)

#16 Updated by Claudio Mendes over 9 years ago

hi,

this works ok but it should cache that information. every time is disconnect the usb hdd to put a few new files the counter will be set back to 0.

#17 Updated by naa dada over 9 years ago

Strange I can disconnect the usb hdd and when I reconnect the counter is NOT set back to 0...

#18 Updated by Claudio Mendes over 9 years ago

oh i find out why it set's it back to 0!

i had the setting at 90% but i reduced it to 75% sot i made some reset... showtime should take count this. if i had gone from 90 to 99 i would understand but not going from 90 down to 75...

I think this is all done now.

Yes, the UI could be better but that is for a different issue to track.
