Moments' Tracker
VLC Extensions
Description:

Moments' Tracker allows you to track all your favorite movie/media moments and scenes.
Bookmark your favorite moment, give it a title/caption, and that's it.

Once you've done this, you can jump directly to your moment anytime you open that media file, no need to scroll through trying to find certain moment.

If you just want to mark your position so that you could resume from where you stopped, you could use the "Checkpoint" feature.

Click the "Checkpoint!" button, and retrieve it whenever you want using "Retrieve Checkpoint" button.

Whenever you open a media file, all your bookmarked moments are displayed so that you can manipulate it.

To install Moments' Tracker, download moments_tracker_V1.lua file, and add it into the following destination:

In Windows:
Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\lua\extensions\

In Mac OS X: /Applications/VLC.app/Contents/MacOS/share/lua/extensions/

In Linux:
/usr/share/vlc/lua/extensions/

Hi, nice plugin. Where are the "Moments" stored on the drive? (So that I can do backup/sync). Are there any limits to the posterity of Moments? I.e. what should I do to make sure they are kept and doesn't go away?

Glad it helped.
Unfortunately, any plugin or add-on for VLC can't work automatically or using a separate specified button, you have to turn it on every time you use VLC, by going to "View" menu, and clicking "Moments' Tracker".

Works for me too!

Mac Yosemite, VLC 215

A few niggles, which I can give you screenshots of if you'd like the feedback - but, amazingly, it works!

Glad you liked it, also these screen shots would be helpful, though, you should know that the interface provided by VLC's UI is really terrible.

I'm using VLC 2.1.5 Rincewind and it works properly for me.
What's your VLC version ?

the same, on Win 8.1 x64

I wanted to use VLSub, and Click to Play/Pause too, but they don't work on 2.1.x, likewise. However, there are notes about the incompatibility on plugins' pages, and I found a similarity and finally the reason. Am I wrong?

Is there anything in the logs if you try to activate the extension?

Lua cannot handle UTF-8 strings properly and so it cannot create/write files with paths containing other than Basic Latin characters (Non-ASCII). Try to customize the destination path:
Line 3 >Quote:
destination = "d:/VLC-moments_tracker.txt"
Line 47 >Quote:
if destination == nil then destination = vlc.config.userdatadir().."/moments_tracker.txt" end

Hi Ayek, could you please specify how it doesn't work ? when you added the file to the destination, did it appear in the "view" menu ?

Yes, but unable to switch on - no reaction.
Should I downgrade do VLC 2.0, because of 2.1 API retrenching?
