How do I make VLC player save my position in a playlist (with audio files) so that when I re-open the playlist it starts where I left off?

can it remember at least the (last used) playlist as such? – cipricus Apr 29 '13 at 22:59
related (but not a dupe, the other Q is about remembering position within a single media file, not in a playlist) – matt wilkie Oct 19 '13 at 7:26

This VLC addon is supposed to do something similar. For me it did not work, but it may be a first step.

As far as I can tell, VLC cannot even remember the last playlist used, according to this.
