Hi everyone,

I use Media Player not only for a music, but also for a podcast listening. Usually, podcasts have a long duration, longer than 1 hour. And I listen it within few attempts while I travel to my workplace and back home. And every time I open my podcast file and the Media Player starts to play it from the beginning. Thus, I have to keep in my mind the time, when I terminated listening last time.

Scenario, how to reproduce:

  1. Open any file in Media Player (music or podcast)
  2. Listen it for a while
  3. Close the Media Player
  4. Open Media Player again and play the same file (btw, may be it's a good idea to add a link "last played" as well to easy find last played songs/podcasts?). Expected, that the Media Player resumes playing not from the beginning, but from the moment of termination.

One more tip.

Nokia N9 has a very-very cool feature: if a music file is quite long, it rewinds the resume moment back to 5-10 seconds. It allows to recollect what you listened about last time. Just imagine, that you listen a long podcast evening and stops the file when you reach your home. Let's say, the resume moment is 53:51. On the next morning you wish to resume listening and usually you struggle to remember what they are talking about. But if the Player rewinds the record back to 5-10 seconds (53:41 in my example), you have a chance to introduce yourself back to the podcast topic. It is really handy feature. At least for me.

Thank you!

This is much of what I said over here I also hope for seeking improvements. Plus, there's a bug in the app which sometimes changes tracks to (unknown album) and labels them 00:00 in length.

@janski Yes, I also voted for this ticket as well.

Took the phone today to work and yes I would like to see this also. Also the last played list would be nice

Also voted on this. The way this was handled on Nokia N9 was quiet fantastic :)

definitely a needed functionality since it is standard in all alternative players
