Default Disable "last position" in audio files (NOT video)

BS player for Android
v1.8 Build 148
My equipment: Droid 3, Samsung Galaxy S3, Galaxy Tab 2 7.0



Hello.

When playing back audio files (from single file playback, or playlist) - it will sometimes begin playing the audio file in the middle of the song, usually because the last time I played the song, I clicked "skip" in the middle of the song to get to the next song. But the next time I play the audio files, it will start at the middle of the song because it remembers the last position.

How do I disable this? So ALL audio files play at the 00:00 start by default?

Clearing cache doesn't resolve this, clearing history will not resolve this.

Thanks for any advice.


Rich

I'm not aware that there is such feature at present.
So your post is to be considered as a feature request.

Wait a second... so *everytime* i play a song, it will never start from the beginning? it will always start playing from the last place it played at? (if I clicked skip song in the middle, for example?)

Is there a file I can click delete on? that stores the location of song's last remembered spot?

I'm disappointed in the software writer for making this feature a ridculous default.

I would normally assume that clearing history (resp. cache) would do the trick, but you mentioned it doesn't (I didn't test myself)

So maybe this is a bug? That being said, however, I understood from your post that you want this feature to be different for audio-files, which makes sense to me with respect to 'normal' music-files of e.g. 4 minutes or so, but as BS.Player may also well be used for listening to a spoken book or to operas or operettas, it maybe is not so totally ridiculous as you rather easily "judge" it to be. For me (and I assume for the majority part of the users, but maybe I'm presumptuous) BSPlayer first and foremost is a video-player, so I can understand the present default as being the (one) 'general default' for all media-types. So I would indeed prefer a selectable option as a new feature for audio (and maybe separately also for video to make BSPlayer even more versatile). In order to do so, I think that first the extentions "known to" BSPlayer will have to be separated in those for audio and those for video (Preferences > General Preferences > Extensions).

I'm right there with you, I also listen to talk radio show podcasts that are 3 hours in length, so I do see the wanting it to do "resume" from the last spot played.

But I think there should also be an option to disable it. I use BSP for both video - and audio too. I really don't want to download another music player, as I really do prefer BS player.

Hope there will be an option for enable/disable this soon.

In the mean time, is there a file I can go into one of the folders, a file that stores the "info" for remembering the timestamp that I can go into and delete? All I found was going into Application from menu, selecting BS Player, and clicking on "clear data" - which also clears ALL other preferences too :(

I hope you can look at my persistence in this issue/matter as a positive thing.

Rich M.

In future builds, there will be an option to remember playback position separately for audio and video.
