How can I easily create and manage audio bookmarks that span multiple MP3s and directories?

Hi,

I would like to easily create a set of named ‘audio bookmarks’ that span many different directories of .MP3 files, and when clicked, will take me to the specific point in a song.

A little background – I play guitar, and when learning songs, like to label the verses, choruses and solos so I can access them quickly and randomly when needed during a guitar practice if I forget some words.

I have the same question for videos, if anyone has any ideas, for .MP4, .AVI and YouTube videos too.

    I haven't seen anything of the sort for audio and video files, but you can bookmark YouTube videos at any point by pausing the video at your start point, right-click on the video and select "Copy video URL at current time". You can then create a bookmark in your browser using the copied URL or create a shortcut using the URL anywhere in your filesystem.

    I'd be _very_ interested to see what suggestions people have. I've looked for something of this nature for both audio and video many times in the past, and have never come across anything!
