Using smplayer from Packman in 11.3 - If I play a video (.avi, mp4…whatever) Use space bar to pause. Press to resume fails, but only if you have watched a fair bit or have moved on in the movie.
Interestingly the pause symbol comes off as if play has resumed but it’s not actually playing. You can press pause again and it shows it as if pausing again.
Darn, this hard to explain.
I switched to VLC and it’s fine but I can’t seem to get that to pick up where I left off (enqueue).
ie; if you have the same experience I’d be interested to know.
or you know the setting in vlc to resume a movie where you left off…
For smplayer, the pause thing works fine here, but i have another issues like resume where we left does not work(or may be i am missing any settings to enable). 2nd if i start the same video again, there is just sound and no video. Vlc works perfect for me except this resume thing.
Edit: Resume works in smplayer now, strange, but video still missing.
I’m going to have to double check some stuff, but it might be just an issue with .mp4 which I get from BBC iplayer (get_iplayer), they are flash converted to .mp4 by ffmpeg as part of the get_iplayer process. But I was testing Mint 9 under the exact same conditions and didn’t have the issue.
