This is a very simple feature request, and easy to implement:

Right now, in BookMarks.ini, the bookmarks use the whole absolute path and not just the filename. This means that if the path changes, the bookmarks will be inaccessible.

When burning a DVD with some movies and KMPlayer on it, it is impossible to know in advance the letter of the DVD drive in the computer that will play the DVD. This means that complete paths in the bookmarks file will fail.

Please store just the filename in the BookMark.ini file.

Also, please use the UTF-8 encoding instead of the current UTF-16. UTF-8 represents all characters equally well, and is also compatible with older text editors.

Thank you.

I don't know if this is possible please do so.

Watching a DVD and making bookmarks. Use the drive for something else( e.g to burn). Insert the DVD into another drive and be able to access the bookmarks... should be great.... You don't have to remember which drive was used for which DVD...

UTF-8 seems to be a good idea

I'm not sure I expressed my idea clearly:

So right now, KMP stores ABSOLUTE PATHS in bookmark.ini. That means paths like C:\Movies\Wedding_01.avi. Suppose I burn that movie to a DVD and delete it from C:\Movies.

The DVD's drive letter is D, so when I pop in the DVD and play the movie with KMP, it will read this from bookmarks.ini:
Code:
[C:\Movies\Wedding_01.avi]
That absolute path no longer matches any file. The path should be D:\Wedding_01.avi, but what if a friend's DVD drive is E:? The solution is very simple: don't store the absolute path in bookmark.ini, but store only the filename:
Code:
[Wedding_01.avi]

I too find this a better idea, however I recommend saving bookmarks into a separate "nearby" file with the video, just like the subtitles way. Then it shall be accessed universally.
