In long media files (1hr+) there can be several segments (or tracks in DJ mix for example).
Would it be possible to potentially consider in the future allowing the user to add a bookmark (or cue-point) at a specific time offset in the file playback? This is then shown in the Wave form seekbar as a line (or other similar UI elements).
This is not dissimilair to the Youtube offset t=??? allowing users to send a Youtube link that starts the video at a specific time?
This information could easily be stored in the tag for the specific file and would be a brilliant feature addition.
I have looked into the use of cue-sheets for this however it is complex and cumbersome, also there is no visual interface.
Several components already offer bookmarking -
- Bookmarks (https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php?topic=46612.0)
- Skip Track (https://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_skip)
- Playlist Attributes (https://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_playlist_attributes)
I think Bookmarks component has a UI element. None currently offer a visual indicator on any seekbar, although Case (author of Skip Track) has mentioned it could be added to Waveform Minibar in the future. I believe you could also add a playlist column to indicate bookmarked tracks (with first two components).
Brilliant. Thanks for the info, I shall check these out.
