More news from YouTube:
http://youtube-global.blogspot.com/2009/09/release-notes-91709.html

One new feature they added relates to your history of watching videos.

"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."

This also means that when you browse away from the video and come back
to it, it will go back to the offset that you were on before. Very
important for flawless video browsing using media fragment URIs!

Cheers,
Silvia.
