    Is there someway I can get per-file bookmarking for the mp3s or an alternative mp3 recommendation for a nintendo DS Lite that'd do the job? i'd like to use it to listen to my audiobooks....or an alternate mp3 player for my nds that would do the same thing..
    Videos played in moonshell2 will remember where I stopped them, but I can only get mp3s to remember when I forcibly leave the app, and that's only good if I don't want to watch/listen to something else in between.



    Thanks for your help!

    I'm pretty sure the answer to this is that there is no app that will allow you to bookmark mp3s. Probably the best you can do is use Moonshell 1 which allows you to fairly accurately select the position you left off using the stylus on the progress bar.

    Moonshell v1.1 had a bookmark system in it. I've not seen it mentioned in Moonshell2...I wonder if the same procedure works?

    Try it and see. Let us know how you get on.

    I can't even get the bookmark system working in moonshell1.71final; and according to this post "http://www.teamcyclops.com/forum/showthread.php?t=2277" it should work.

    the only reference is it's supposed to have something to do with the files being in the right case and using the L/R buttons, but I've never gotten any combination of buttons to work.

    I tried putting the bookmark.sav style files from the earlier version (which already existed in the right place from what I can tell) in moonshl2\internal\ and moonshl2\ to no avail.


    Ultimately there's a sucky work-around option....Use moonshl2 for videos and everyday use.
    Use moonshl1 for ONLY listening to 1 audiobook at a time.

    Anyone have ideas for getting it working on moonshl1 at least?

    Copule of points:

    If you are following the instructions from the CycloDS site, make sure you use their moonshell, it's slightly modified.

    The instructions I posted work for the default version of 1.71, I've just tidied them up a bit.

    THe booksmark files need to be in the moonshell folder.

    I was using their moonshell, but I've done some poking around and get the feeling that bookmarks only work for text files...can anyone confirm?

    Unfortunately I can't find the bookmarks.txt file in any older moonshell build floating around to confirm how it works right now.

    That's great if you don't want to watch or listen to something else in between. Sometimes I like to take a break from an 11hr audiobook to listen to a cd or watch something [​IMG]

    I think you're right when you say the bookmarks are for text files only. I've never seen anything about bookmarking audio files.

    There is another cumbersome option of course - convert your audio books to dpg and listen to them with the video player...

    So does moonshell 2 have the ability to play movie files or is there another app for that?

    Haha, well, I'd recommend the DPG converter that comes with moonshell 2. You just need to set the language to english.
