One of the best features of the old video player was the ability to resume playback if the page was closed and reopened. This functionality appears to be broken with the new player.

This feature was particularly useful because of the positioning of the dropdown menus that cover the video player when hovered over. Countless times, I've accidentally clicked a different link when attempting to pause a video... with the old player this wasn't a problem because it remembered my position and would resume when I went back a page.

I seem to recall that feature was taken out while they do some bug fixes to the new video player. It's a great feature, that will be much appreciated when it is back.

It's a known problem. The feature wasn't part of the new player. Rorie said an engineer is working on rebuilding the feature from scratch, so I'm guessing we'll have it back soon enough.
