    For podcasts and audiobooks it is important that the player you are using remember where you left off if you stop playing a file half way because these files are often very long.

    If the team could implement some kind of bookmark-functionallity (or "resume where left off...") in OggPlay it would make a mobile phone the perfect device for listening to podcasts and audiobooks.

    Anyway, it is a great player and one of the best in my small roundup here:

    Thank you for an excellent product!

      Agreed, I'd love to see a bookmark feature for oggplay for exactly the same reasons already stated.  Being totally blind and having a nokia 6680 phone that talks and can also replace a non-accessible standalone mp3 player would be fantastic.

      Regards Nick

        Does anyone know if this feature was roughed in at all (even if not available yet)?

        Just wondering how you would do this?
        Write out a file and one line per bookmark?

        I am also interested in using this for Audiobooks and bookmarking locations is absolutely essential.

        Thanks,
        Dave

      This is a feature that would be good to add. I'm currently working on 1.0.8 for non-MMF but once I've got that done I'll take a look at adding bookmarks.
