Similar suggestion as "User Bookmarks for VOD"
Yes it would be incredibly useful on mobile especially, to have a way to remember the last played position on a VOD.
This suggestion is different but I could see a way to make both work:
- with the "watch later" icon (OP suggestion) , whether you watch a VOD or live, it would effectively create a single (one per VOD / broadcast) bookmark available later in a "continue watching" section
Therefore if I'm watching a VOD on mobile I would tap that icon before closing the app, and be able to continue watching later.
If I'm watching LIVE like OP suggests, likewise, it would appear later .. but since it was during a live broadcast that "timestamp" would show up only when the broadcast has been archived (as OP said "when the VOD has been uploaded").
Just a suggestion to support both scenarios.
For the VOD "resume" scenario, that would mean it is a manual feature, and not automatic (where as it would stroe the last playback position of the last 10 watched VODs for example).
But that's fine.
One implementation idea:
- if not bookrmark set it just lights up or show a fading out popup that says something like " Added to your Watch later queue"
- if already bookamrked (current live or VOD), it could give a choice : replace current position, cancel, and "delete / clear". (the last one removes it from the "watch later" list.
