Hi,
Is it possible to configure Kodi so that once I have seen a video closed kodi and then reopened the same video at another time it will be played from the point where it was left off?
You only have to press the STOP button for that during that video, and the bookmark will be written to the video database.

I solved it but I have to create the bookmaker manually or can it also be done automatically?

Not officially. There was a initial attempt to do things more (semi) automatic, but I have no idea where that project stands today.

so I have to create it manually it doesn't write itself as you said?

Indeed.

It's a single press of one button (the 'x') on your keyboard, or a button on your remote. That's all. It's not a life-changing event. Wink
Another option might be writing a service addon which monitors whether videos are playing and when it finds a video playing it updates the bookmark table in the database.  I do this for my uPNP server addon.  It updates the shared bookmark on the uPNP server every 15 seconds. The service addon here would just need to save it locally to the Kodf database instead.

Kodi always creates resume points automatically and can be tuned to behave however you want see https://kodi.wiki/view/HOW-TO:Modify_aut...ume_points
