hmm I'm a iPod user but not sure if I understand what you mean. iPod can't handle multi genre (like MM) so you must have audiobook as first genre and when check "Use only the first Genre when multi Genre exist" in device profile (sync).
Open iTunes, select any track. Right mouse and select "get info", select the "options" tab. One of the binary choices (on or off) is "remember playback position". (Note that this works with any genre setting).
This means that if you listen to 1/3, or 1/2 of the track on your iPod
, turn off your iPod, or select a different track, when you select and play this track again the iPod will start at the same position you stopped last time. This has many uses, but think of listening to a one hour podcast that is interrupted, and you stop your iPod. When you come back the next hour/day/week, it automatically restarts where it stopped. Very useful. This feature is turned on on the iPod only
when you set "audiobook" as your genre in MediaMonkey
. And only
for this genre, instead of setting a switch that works with any genre.
If you are a Gold user you can setup your filters to enable bookmarking no matter the file type or genre. I am not sure if it is possible to use bookmarking if you are not a Gold user or if it is possible to enable/disable bookmarking on individual file types other than Audiobooks.
Well, I am a gold user, but I'm not sure if this is relevant. I'm not asking about restarting when playing a track using the MediaMonkey player. I'm asking about playback on my iPod (as above).
If bookmarking can effect playback on my iPod, I live to learn - please let me know.
So... what I'm really looking for is a way to use RegExp to set the same bit that "remember playback position" does with iTunes.
