    Mark or tag specific points in a movie, sort of like a bookmark? Where I can also write notes about the scene?


    Thanks everyone

    dvd cat 4 has the option to allow the end user to do just that. there may be other encoding apps out there that also do it but i use dvd cat and i know it has the feature. you cant do this natively on the xoom if thats what you are asking.

    I'm not sure if that actually works on the Xoom though.
    The scene markings from DVDs and MKV files that have them can be added to the MP4 files, and on iDevices it works pretty cool, but last time I tried it on Android (Droid X) the Gallery video player just ignored them.

    I'll give it a try today on the Xoom.

    To enable them in DVD Cat, enable Power User, then in Global Settings > Conversion enable the "insert chapter/scene" checkmark and restart dvdcat to rescan the DVD/MKV file. If the source videos you convert do not have scene markings, the interval-setting (default 5 minutes) will be used.

    Note that because the scene markings are read differently from DVDs, some DVDs can cause complications. Lost Season 2 is one of them, but there are probably more.
