Play a Song, Podcast Back From Where You Paused it in iTunes

When I first bought an iPod touch and used it to play music, I saw that songs or podcasts didn’t play from where I left them. That means, if I were to pause a particular song or podcast, and then play a different podcast, the previous one would go back to its starting point and I would need to play it from the beginning.

Turns out that there is a simple setting in iTunes that can take care of the above issue (if it’s an issue to you that is ).

Here are the steps.

1. Open iTunes on your computer.

2. Select a song or a podcast, right click on it, and click on “Get Info.”


3. Now, in the window that opens up, click on the “Options” tab at the top.

4. Under Options, you’ll find a checkbox that says Remember playback position. Check it and click Ok.


That’s it. The next time you sync your iPod, you’ll find that songs and podcasts play exactly from the point you paused them. Simple and easy.
