#1 | Link | BookMarks.ini - please remove the 20 bookmarks limit, Posted 06-01-2008 Quote
I just downloaded the latest beta (2.9.3.1431) and was reviewing some old clips to which I knew I had added bookmarks... but the bookmarks were gone!

After some searching on the forums, I found that KMPlayer limits the number of bookmarks in bookmarks.ini to 20 files! Will all due respect, no other media players impose this limitation, and there is no reason for it (see the zero-one-infinity rule). The context menu can show the last N bookmarked files from the bookmarks.ini, but removing bookmarks silently without informing the user is just evil. Many users put a lot of work in bookmarking the interesting moments in their vacation or family videos, and when they want to show them to friends, they suddenly find that old bookmarks had been wiped out.

Can the new development team remove this limitation please?

I think it won't be removed until the performance issue is improved.

I don't really use the bookmarks but what's about a user defined limit. The user would know that theres a limit and if he increases the limit the performance may suffer. An "at own risk" feature.
Please read this before you post and use the Forums Search. Read other sticky threads, too. Thank you.

IMO, the feature of bookmark should be revamped so that we can export the bookmarks to an individual chapter file. Just lifting the bookmarks' limit is rather meaningless at this point. And the performance problem cannot be overlooked at any rate.

There might be performance issues, I didn't experienced it (unlike with kmpcfg.ini). But I don't think the limit solves anything. Why add it?

#8 | Link | Good code should handle bookmarks for 100 movies just fine, Posted 07-20-2008 Quote
OK, so allowing bookmarks for only 20 movies is fine, but for 100 there's a performance problem? It's 100 movies times, say, 20 bookmarks per movie. It's not like we're dealing with millions of records. With all due respect, but the code for handling bookmarks may need some improvement.

I've never encountered this problem with any other video players. Is it maybe because KMP simultaneously hold all bookmarks in memory, not just those defined for the currently loaded movie?

KMP does have the feature of jumping to a bookmark in a movie that's not loaded, but I think very few users find that feature useful. Perhaps a good solution would be to load only the bookmarks for the current movie?

well, I don't use bookmarks either but I think it would be best to remove the limit and give us an option to set the number of bookmarks we have. And in the options, make a note to users that the more, the less performance I guess....

That more bookmarks mean less performance is BULLSHIT. Let's be honest about this. BSPlayer does not have a limit on the number of bookmarks. ViPlay does not have a limit on bookmarks either. What makes KMP special in this regard?

The author should face it: either the limitation on bookmarks is useless, or the implementation of how bookmarks are handled, is crap.
