You will need gawk, build-essential, libvlccore-dev , and libvlc-dev installed before you try this.
I will show a command line install since that is how I roll. gawk should already be installed in Linux-Lite but it does not hurt to check in synaptic before you start. There is no gui way to install this other plugin since it is not in ubuntu repos yet.

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install libvlccore-dev libvlc-dev
Let it finish installing.

then

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install build-essential
You need the above to install source files in Linux-Lite like tar files.

Let it install and finish.

Download the

Quote
libsrpos_plugin-*.tar.gz package

from the link above in the beginning of my post. I downloaded it to my Downloads folder.
Right click on it and pick extract here.
Delete the tar next. You should have just a folder now in Downloads.

Open the folder. Right click and pick open terminal here.
When terminal opens. You should see before the dollar sign on the end

Code: [Select]
~/Downloads/libsrpos_plugin-0.3
Now for the command line install instructions.

Quote
./configure

and

Quote
make

Should be done as user. No need to use sudo or be root. Only

Quote
make install

requires the sudo command since that installs the plugin outside of the /home directory and you need root permissions to do that.

So, you have your terminal open inside of your /home/user name/wherever you save the download to/libsrpos_plugin-0.3  folder
Like I said. There is no gui way to do this!

Type in

Code: [Select]
./configure
A bunch of text will scroll. Let it finish. When you get back to the $ prompt after it is done.

Code: [Select]
make
This will go by quicker. Let it finish.  When you get back to the $ prompt after it is done.

Code: [Select]
sudo make install
This will finish quickly also. When done. Close Terminal. Open VLC. Open Tools>Preferences>All (it is on the bottom l/h side)>Control Interfaces>tick save/restore position of last known played file.
Hit the save button before closing advanced preferences and closing vlc for new preferences to take.
Restart VLC. Repeat above to make sure changes took.

You should have a screen like mine



You can now delete the download extracted libsrpos_plugin-0.3 folder you did this source install with.

@ the Mods. If you do not wish for users to do this. Because I have been warned a couple of times about using cli in posts here in Linux-Lite Forums.
Feel free to delete my thread. No harm, no foul as far as I am concerned.
I am a rough tough thick skinned biker so it is hard to hurt my feelings.
I just thought someone might benefit on how I did this.

The bookmark feature has worked well for me.

Playback > Custom Bookmarks

To create a bookmark = Ctrl + B

To use a bookmark start the movie/video, puase it, and select the desired bookmark to jump to that location.

If you want VLC to open a new window in the same location with the same window size as before, just close out the previous VLC window in whatever size you want next time.  It remembers.  If you want to resume something where you left off, just pause the video and minimize the window.
