Mokona512 is on a distinguished road

That is a long running bug with BSplayer, where sometimes, it will not remember the last location, especially if the player crashes for any reason, or if that annoying issue happens where the floating video window suddenly disappears for no reason, it will forget where it left off.

Though if the media is stopped using either the built in playback controls, or the back button, it seems to retain the position where it was stopped at, pretty much all of the time.

Sadly for competing players, there really isn't anything better. I tried like 30 other video players, and nothing really offers the feature set of bsplayer.

The only exception is a player called "dice player", which can stream from DLNA or smb shares, and doesn't have the issue of the hover window randomly closing for no reason, as well as supporting subtitle files and seeking from within the hover window, but the developer abandoned the app, thus unless you are running android 4.0 or older, it won't work anymore.

The best outcome would be if the devs at bsplayer could get a hold of the code from bsplayer, in order to add in their hover player, subtitle support, and the crash recovery, where if you launch an app that causes the hover window to crash, it will recover where it left off.
