It would be really good to be able to pause playing an audio file (perhaps an audiobook or a podcast), and to be able to resume playing at a later date from the same point in the file. There is a facility for bookmarking video files, but not (it seems) audio files.

My enthusuasm for this comes about because of the likelihood that the forthcoming Raspberry Pi tiny-computer will make an excellent portable media player when used with XBMC. I would like to be able to replay audio files (in MP2, MPG and MP3 formats) with this bookmarking facility.

Is there any prospect for getting this facility added, please?

I too would love to have this feature. I end up using iTunes just for that reason.

Thanks for your support, JP. A perceived problem that has prevented me (and my wife) from using iTunes is that I have not found a portable media player with iTunes that does not have a touch screen or tiny buttons - no good for a person with arthritic fingers!! There will be much more scope for a user-friendly interface with XBMC on a Raspberry Pi. BernardG.
