Galaxy-S (Vibrant), Android 2.1

I was watching Avatar the other day and paused it. When I played it again later, it restarted at the beginning. Is it possible to resume play from where I left off, or bookmark a position or something? Or is there a different/better player that does this? Thanks!

I'd change the main question to tell its for the Galaxy S. The default player should remember where you was as long as you don't close it. I don't have any experience with other players. – Barfieldmv Sep 20 '10 at 11:58

My T-Mobile Vibrant (Samsung Galaxy S) just received a OTA update from T959UVJFD to T959UVJI6. It appears that this may have fixed the problem you are describing. It no longer is a problem for me after this update was installed. It is also mentioned at the xda-developers site along with other changes that were included in the update.

I am using the default movies and player that came with my Galaxy S (AT*T Captivate) without this error. It may be possible that there was a timeout (how long did you pause for?). You may also want to try the doubletwist video player to see if it resolves your problem.

I have the same issue with my Samsung Vibrant. I just started dropping bookmarks before "pausing" and resuming from them.

How do you drop a bookmark? – Joe Casadonte Sep 26 '10 at 14:54
