I guess this is my real question: What is the best way to keep track of progress in individual videos so that when a user goes back later they can resume instead of having to start over?

I ended up using SharedPreferences and saving progress in the onPause event.

Hi Friend, I also got same issue while video streaming. At my side its working fine whatever they given rejected reason. But don't know why they rejected app many times. If you don't mind can you please share your answer for how can you manage with sharedpreference. Because I also do that but than also amazon team is rejected my app. It would be good if you can share your thought. Here its steps for reason. 1. While the video is playing do a microphone search. 2. Navigate back to the app. Actual Result: Observe, video restarts from first. Expected Result: On Navigating back to app the video should resume itself from the marker where it had left.

HI Prashant, If you haven't solved this issue yet, please let me know which app you are referring to. But basically how you should implement if you haven't done so is save the video playing position on onPause() and resume the video from that position on onResume().
