    Default Where is the resume time stored and can I edit it?

    I have an old Samsung C series TV that doesn’t support chapters, but does support resume (using the “D” key on the remote).

    Quite often — especially after a server reboot or restarting the Mezzmo service — the TV loses it’s resume point. Since my TV doesn’t support chapters, it can take forever to manually fast-forward to wherever I stopped the movie.

    Where is the resume information stored and can I edit it? It would be a viable workaround to quickly regain resume control instead of having to lean on the fast-forward button for 5-10 minutes.

    The resume information is stored in the MGODeviceBookmark table in the database. You will need to know the File ID and the position in seconds where you want to resume.

    I looked at the table and doesn't contain the movie I'm currently watching or the one before it. The movie before that is in the table and is the newest entry. As a test, I just started a movie and let it run for 30 minutes. The table didn't update with the File ID, but the TV is letting me resume. Is there anywhere else the bookmark data is stored?

    This is the only location where the bookmark data is stored. Possibly the TV is not sending the bookmark back to the Mezzmo server and is only storing the bookmark locally within it's memory?

    I just sent you an email with a snapshot of the last 7 videos. It suggests the Samsung is writing to the MGODeviceBookmark table, but my other player -- a WDLive TV -- is not. I have proven that bookmark data is being stored locally, but of the last 5 movies played by this player, two of them did update the bookmark table. Weird. Anyway, you answered my original question, so I should be good. Thanks!

    Yes WDTV Live devices write their bookmarks locally and do not return them to the media server. Samsung devices have their own X_Bookmark message that is sent to the server when a video stops playing so if this is not being sent the server will not have the bookmark.

    A quick update:

    The solution works with my Samsung C TV and is relatively quick. The trick is predicting where I was in the movie. At least, I can now bounce to the middle and FF/RW from there.

    I know this is likely obvious, but the WD Live boxes are pretty old now and no longer supported. If you move to a Kodi device and leverage the addon, you can also share bookmarks between devices, if you'd like. I replaced my WD Live boxes awhile ago for this reason and others. There are a number of cheap devices which run Kodi including a Raspberry Pi 3 or 4 (I prefer 4 for the HW HEVC support), Vero 4K+ and more.

    How does Kodi do with HDR on the 4k with the Pi4? Does it actually play HDR? I haven't had much luck with 4k HDR content yet. Admittedly, I've been experimenting mostly with Android on the Pis, and LineageOS, which doesn't appear to support HDR at all.

    I am running LIbreElec on my Pi4. It will play 4K content with HDR but right now it maps it to SDR. Native HDR is coming. Likewise pass-through bitstream audio isn't there yet but the LibreElec folks have test builds available for this. I have a NUC, Vero 4K+ units and Raspberry Pi 4s. All of them work well, each with their strengths and weaknesses. I have an older 4K TV which doesn't yet support HDR but the SDR mapping is pretty good. I have no problem with the Pi 4 playing full bitrate 4K HEVC rips. Likewise for the Vero 4K+ units. They run OSMC.
