I've added a new panel in the home window to show the "currently watching videos" so if you stop your video and went to sleep last night it is only a couple of clicks away the next day. It supports up to 4 videos (movies and tvshows) and it tells you the remaining time for each of them (they are sorted by remaining time also). Here are some screens:
It also moves when in "movie" or "tvshows" menu:
You need a very recent svn version of XBMC for this to work. Also, if you apply this patch to xbmc then it will show a recent thumbnail of the moment you stop the video. If not, the normal thumb/fanart wil be shown.
You can download the changes here, just overwrite the files in the MediaStream_Redux folder or this patch which applies to redux 0.9.5
Let me know if it works for you. Regards,
PS: I opened a new thread as the original mediastream_redux was getting too big with requests and mods...
