Glad it works for you. Happy listening and happy Easter all.

Perfect! The confusion is that I think of a bookmark as something I would
place during the reading of a book. In my view the "book" is a track. In
Winamp's view the "book" is a collection of tracks.

The place marker works exactly as I needed.

Thanks much.

Dave

Yes, they are different. I think I've explained in my previous message the
difference. The bookmarks allow you to return to a file or stream you like
for a later time, but a time markers allow you to set a bookmarks in a file ( you can't set time markers in streams) and later return to the same place. For example, you listen or watch long file and you need to restart the pc in
the middle. You just add time marker and after restart you can use it to
jump directly to the place you stopped. Warning, if you have deleted or
moved the file you have placed markers in, they are gone.
Here is some information from the jaws help:

Time Markers and Time Announcement

The following commands allow you to get time information about the current
track, or to manipulate time markers within a track. These commands work in
any
Winamp window except the minibrowser.

Summary: Time Marker and Announcement Commands

If you mean time markers, they are placed with the letter m. you can

them automaticly nmamed like "marker 1" and so on or you can name them
manually and press enter. You can delete time markers with ctrl+shift+m
or
go to time marker with alt+shift+m. All those hotkeys open the
corresponding
dialogue. Ctrl.+i saves markers in a file named winamp.bm. It's
applicable
if you have big playlist and want to bookmark a song you like to heare
again. Also you can use it to bookmark streams you hear on internet. You
can
find those bookmarks in the winamp menu/bookmarks. The file itself is
located in c:\program files\winamp or
c:\documents&settings\username\aplication data\winamp\.
