Video streaming - storing stop/resume point

Like Udemy or any other eLearning platforms or even YouTube, I want to build a video streaming unit and I am trying to figure out how to store positions within a video where user stopped watching and enable the user to resume watching from the stored point.

Anyone can help me with this?

It depends what service you’re using as to how exactly you’ll need to do it…

But most video players will have a way, via their SDK or API, for you to access the video play position…

Then it’s just a case of storing that value to your database (or elsewhere), and then using it to set the play position of the video when it’s loaded again.

Some of the Bubble video player plugins have this as a feature…

If you’re using Vimeo, I think there’s a Bubble plugin that has their entire Player SDK… otherwise check their developer docs, and if you’re using some other service then again, check their developer docs to see how they work.

Hi @adamhholmes,

Thanks for your time and info. I am thinking of my own video collection in my blog rather than hosting them on YT or Vimeo.

So, I’ve been seeking some easy-to-use plugin, but what I found, videojs, was so overwhelming for me.

Anyway, I appreciate your info.
