There are a multitude of bookmarking services around which let you store your favorite website addresses with a click, and there are even services like Pocket which give you the power to save interesting articles to read when you have more time. But until now there hasn’t been a quick and easy way to save a video bookmark so you can return later to the place you left off watching.
Pause For Later is a clever online service which lets you bookmark your position in a video you’re watching so you can return to it when you’re ready and have more time. The service runs with any of the major video sites like Vimeo, YouTube and the rest, and not only lets you save your place, but also share, archive and make public for others to enjoy.
What’s very cool is the fact that the video starts exactly at the point where you did the save, so no hunting around for the exact moment manually. You have to sign up for an account in order to make it all work, and then install a browser plugin or bookmarklet, but after that it’s a cinch to save your position just by clicking a button.
It’s perfect for those times when you’re watching a late night movie on your laptop and get too tired to continue. Just click save and return to it the next day when you’re in a boring meeting at work. You’ve got a Bluetooth headset right? The service is free and useful, what’s not to like?
