I'm rewatching some older series I've been through multiple times, however when the next video starts, because I've watched it before, it has a habit of picking up at the end of the episode before I had previously skipped the credits.

Is there a method to reset my progress so that the videos always start from the beginning, or am I just kind of stuck using '[' or manually clicking on the bar to take me back to the beginning of the video?

Thanks.

You can nuke your entire watch history with a button click on this page, but that even includes any simulcasts you are keeping up on... /home/history (simpler)

Or you can use the Crome browser and install an extension by Beardfist which, among other things, allows you to do all the episodes of just one show at a time. (installs needed) Link to the extension here: /group/Beardfists_Programming_Corner

Usually when I rewatch a show, if I start the first episode over, then it will start the rest from the beginning too, but there have been times where it didn't want to do that. On the extreme side of things you can clear your history and that will reset your progress on every show, but I can give you some javascript to run that will reset the progress on any one show you want.

Just navigate to the show page, then open the console (F12 in IE and Chrome, CTRL+K in firefox (I think)). Copy and paste the following code into the console and hit enter. Depending on how large the show is, it may freeze the page for like a minute, but don't worry, that is intentional.


var mediaIds = [];
$('li[id^=showview_videos_media_]').filter(function(){return $(this).find('div.episode-progress').width()> 0}).each(function(){
  mediaIds.push(this.id.split('_')[3]);
});
for(var x =0;x<mediaIds.length;x++){
  var data = "req=RpcApiVideo_VideoView&media_type=1&cbcallcount=1&cbelapsed=30&playhead=0&media_id=" + mediaIds[x];
  $.ajax("http://www.crunchyroll.com/ajax/",{async:false,data:data});
}

Hey I appreciate it. I did clear the history, and I don't really follow any active items anyway.

Thanks Again
