I could imagine adding an additional context menu entry like Hide/Show Reflection on Panels so the Main Player for example would look like this:



But removing the panels entirely from the skin is definitely a No-Go!

There is a discussion about the ability of stopping playback while listening to an audiobook and resuming it to a later point of time. The most elegant solution to that request was installation of an additional plug-in which would provide such feature.

But actually, this should not be a problem to create a new TRACK BOOKMARKS window which would provide some SET BOOKMARK buttons and GO TO BOOKMARK buttons. Clicking on the first one would save the file's name and thumb's position and the second ones would allow to jump into the saved time marker.

The question is: what would be the most convenient way to create such feature?

You mean.. Create that through script on a skin?

Yep. I already checked with std.mi:

PHP Code:
getPosition() - Get the current position in the track currently playingin milliseconds 
PHP Code:
seekTo() - Seek to the desired position in the trackRange is from 0 to SONG LENGTH (in milliseconds). 
All I have to do is double check whether seekTo() means "move the progress thumb to the value in the brackets". If yes: the SET button would save the position of the thumb as private integer and the GO button would move the thumb to that particular saved time. Sounds simple, does it not?

Ah! That's cool, I thought you were thinking about using internal bookmarks feature (which would not do it).
In fact, your method would be good too for saving other kind of entries.. (thinking.. thinking..)

P.S. My last "real" CD Player had a A-B Repeat feature. Would this be useful?

Update: we have a winner! The command seekTo() makes the progress thumb jump into the time value set in brackets. Yes!

Update2: both commands work flawlessly: getPosition() remembers the thumb's position and seekTo() makes the thumb jump into this value.

We are good to go ...

Hmm.. I was thinking about
bookmarking entire Albums (which the internal bookmark feature can't do), but getting the name of the album (trough tags) or the file path doesn't help actually..

But what would be the advantage of having bookmarks for albums while we can save playlists?

No, it does not because we cannot play audio files using script lines. There is this System.playFile() command, which, unfortunately, does not work. This would be the perfect solution because the file name and position of the thumb could be saved and played anytime just by a click of a button. Winamp would start playing the file and the progress thumb would jump into the saved time value.

A short update. I have been working on a Track Bookmarks feature which will look like this:



It will provide three SET and GO buttons so you can save up to three bookmarks for a track. Unfortunately, we cannot have a button which would start a particular song and make the progress/seek thumb jump into the saved position. We still have to "manually" launch a file (for example an audio book) and then hit one of those GO buttons, which will make the progress thumb jump into previously saved positions.

Excellent work! A few years down the road and this is still one of the best skins out there. I love it!
