I'd like to be able to open a video, watch it a bit, and then store a bookmark, continue watching maybe bookmark it again, close the video, come back a day or two later, and pick up where I left off watching, and find my other two there a media player or equivalent plugin for a media player capable of such functionality?

Wouldn't hurt if it had the ability to add annotations as well...

While I'm sure there are many players with this sort of functionality, here are two:

  1. VLC:

    Editing bookmarks:

  2. KMPlayer:

    During playback:

    When no file is open:

    Editing bookmarks:

Both are fully self-contained players that don't require any external codecs/codec packs installed, although KMPlayer can be configured to utilise external codecs if required.
