umenu restarting files

Hello,

I just had a simple question today. I am working on a project that is using the umenu to randomly switch through a list of videos, then sending them to the jit.scissors object to split the frame into 3 videos (using 3 projectors)

Anyway the question I have is simply can you some how set the umenu to not restart the video when it “opens” it, ( I have some long videos and although its random I want them to play again from the same frame they left off when they are “opened by the umenu”)

Unless im just not seeing it as an easy option, i was thinking I could get the frame count or something and when the video pops up it just resumes from that same framecount?>

Help is much appreciated, left my patch, throw your on vids in to test lol.

I took some bits from Jitter Tutorial #4 in order to convert QT time values into frames.
