    Decided to use the native XBOX Video player instead of VLC. Happy with the program except for one really annoying issue.
    If you pause a video (stored locally on disk) and for whatever reason the screen turns off, when you attempt to start the video where you left off, you're taken instead to the XBox Video store page, with no way to restart the paused video.

    One has to navigate to the saved file location, restart the video and drag the timeline to the correct location where the video was paused.

    Any ideas?

    This is due to a recent update to the XBox video app. There used to be a resume option, but it was removed. If you launch the video from within the app, it will remember where it stopped, but you still have navigate back to the specific video from within the app.
