    What is it with these resumeLater and Pauseforlater plugins to save youtube videos for later. Are people unwilling to create youtube accounts to use Watch Later button in there. It's great, by the way. If you stop in the middle of the video it even remembers the spot and next time starts the video couple a seconds before that spot. So you can recognise where you left of and continue watching.

      I am with you on this one. I personally would prefer to use a native Youtube feature for that.
