MPlayer Resume Playback 1.6

A wrapper script for mplayer which saves the playback position of a file you are watching.
MPlayer Resume Playback is a wrapper script for mplayer which saves the playback position of a file you are watching, and when you resume playing the file, will seek to where you last left off. It's most useful with remote control devices.

MPlayer Resume Playback script works by listening to mplayer's output. MPlayer has several commands that you can send to LIRC, one of them is 'get_time_pos' which will tell you the playback position of your media file. The script simply captures that output and saves it for each file you play in a directory.

If you need a remote control, I highly recommend the StreamZap USB IR remote control.
Documentation is already included in the script. Just setup the directory you want to save the files to, and configure your .lircrc file to save the playback position on exit.
