VLC Playlist Rememberer
An extension that saves the last played item of a playlist to continue later on.

Copy VPR.lua file to

Linux: ~/.local/share/vlc/lua/extensions/ and ~/.local/share/vlc/lua/extensions/playlist/

Windows: C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\lua\extensions\ and C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\lua\playlist\

Create directories if do not exist

Create a resumable playlist
Create a text file with the following format: (only for the first time)

First line: VPR84296c0939f946089f45c97b9981afde

Second line: The last played file URI like: file:///tmp/Videos/Video1.mkv. Empty line to start from the beginning

Other lines: Each line should be a file URI like: file:///tmp/Videos/Video1.mkv. Each line is a playlist item

Then open the created file with VLC

Enable VPR extension in VLC from View --> VPR (this should be enabled each time VLC opens)

Please don't place the file anywhere that VLC doesn't have permission to read or write

File or URL can be used

Look at the PlaylistTextFileExample.txt

How this works
If a text file with the first line of VPR84296c0939f946089f45c97b9981afde opened in VLC this extension will create a playlist with URI from line 3 to the last (each line one item). And put the address of the playlist text file with an identifier string to each item's description (to be able to update last played item).

Every time a new item starts playing, it's description will be checked. If the identifier and a file address exist then the second line of the file will change to the URI of the current playing item.
