Is there a way to autosave positions of YouTube videos? Preferably automatically and without plugins.

This worked a month ago without a plugin, now it does not work anymore (for me).

Ubuntu Linux and Chromium browser.

  • Still works for me, but with the stipulations in my answer below... – TryTryAgain Mar 30 '16 at 17:38

Unfortunately, the built in YouTube video resume feature is only for videos "longer than 20 minutes". And, of course, you have to be logged in. There are also these stipulations: "you've watched more than one minute of the video and there are more than three minutes left.".

Here's my source from long ago when the feature was first released, where they state:

Resume where you left off: Let's say you're watching an epic (read: longer than 20 minutes) video, and you get distracted and click away. The next time you return to the video, it will resume where you left off watching, assuming you've watched more than one minute of the video and there are more than three minutes left.

Unfortunately it is not possible without an external plugin. You can try one such as Video Resumer on Chrome and resumeLater on Firefox
