Media Player
 
Is there a free media player for XP that will keep your place in a play list?

I have windows media player installed right now, and think I've had the same problem with I tunes.

When I load up a book that has many many chapters (currently have a book I loaded up from 11 cd's each with around 12 files).

The windows media player will play them in order from my play list. However, if it gets closed or if a different file gets opened, I lose my place in the book.

I just need something that is smart enough to keep a electronic book mark in my play lists?
Thanks
Jamie

Not sure of the file type you're using but a free player that's pretty good for music is winamp. Check to see if it supports the type of file you need.
Also, it's pretty good in not taking up a lot of system resources like WMP or iTunes does. I use it for my default program to play music because it loads quickly and doesn't hog up all my memory.

There is some info on a plugin for WMP.

Also try Foobar 2000. There is an option in the preferences to resume playback when you restart the program. I haven't experimented with it enough to know if it'll do exactly what you need.

Thank You!

Mainly Mp3's. I think winamp is what I was looking for. I was thinking that I had something that worked in the past, but could not remember what it was. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

Thank You
Jamie

It is difficult to find better programs but I think Winamp can do this. Share your experience with us after using it and let us know how did you make it.

VLC Media player is the best for me! I tried winamp and VLC is way superior!

I think foobar2000 might keep track. Its nice because of its wide range of formats and its converting capabilities.
