I've tried VLC and MPlayerX and I was disappointed with their "Recent" menu. VLC maintains very little history and it sometimes even randomly erases itself.
I switched to MPlayerX -- it doesn't erase at random, but there are only 6 items in "Recent".
I watch multiple TV series and this lack of more "Recent" history sometimes leads me to lose track of what is the most recent episode I've watched on the particular series.
Does anyone know a video player that supports adjusting that to 25 or more items in it's "Recent" menu
