Unlike NETFLIX and Amazon Video, Faithlife TV Mobile Education Videos seem to have no option allowing the user to resume viewing at their last stopping point. Unless you can watch the entire collection of video segments in one sitting, you have to keep a file somewhere indicating where you stopped watching last time you were looking at that particular course. 

Since the feature already exists and is in use by other platforms, Faithlife should be able to easily incorporate it into its own video offerings.

What platform are you using to watch? We do keep track of what videos you've watched and automatically resume if you stopped in the middle.

Dave,

I use a Roku 4.   If I stop a video (something that is not related to mobile ed- like one of the movies on John Wesley, to the Spurgeon video) today and want to pick it up tomorrow, it always starts back at the beginning.   I have to manualy move the video by fast forwarding to the correct place.

On Roku we will resume within the same channel session, but not if you go back to the Roku home screen and back to the channel. This is a bug and I'll put it on our list to fix. Thanks for the report!
