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 FilesVideoLANVLCluaextensions

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

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

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 to VLC v.2.0, because of 2.1 API retrenching?

The good: Easy to use. Useful "Checkpoint" optional feature for quick bookmark/moment. Works with VLC 2.2.6 Umbrella. The bad: The extension can not be install per user. It can only be install for all users. So for Linux you must install the extension at "/usr/share/vlc/lua/extensions/". Otherwise it would not work at "~/.local/share/vlc/lua/extensions/". Using: Moments' Tracker from 2016-09-13 "168031-moments_tracker_V1.lua". Debian 8 Jessie64-bit. GNOME 3.14.1. This is a suggestion, how about an additional "Remember Last" toggle button? When the user click on this "Remember Last" toggle button, a checkpoint would automatically be created when the user click on either VLC "Stop" playback button or close VLC. In other words, "Moments' Tracker" would remember the last position for all video files played, automatically resuming playback where you finished last time for all medias. Easy :)

Easy :) By default this toggle button could be deactivated. So that only interested users could activate it.
