Resume last played media button is missing if last played video is from /storage/sdcard1/... folder. Completed videos aren't marked too. (Didn't checked another folders)
It is on its place even if last played media file is same but has another path because of different device mount point (/mnt/ext_sdcard/...)
(Just playing with filtering scanning folders)
OS is Android 4.2.2, PacMan Rom
Device is Huawei U9508
Here's a bug demostration:

I think MX Player is path specific. I'd recommend changing your defined video folders in your MX settings, so that it only checks 1 mount path of your SD card.

I know that it's solution to change video folders
But why it does work for some folders and for some folders it doesn't?

For example, it does appear for "/mnt/sdcard1/Anime/GTO/GTO - 01.avi", but doesn't for "/storage/ext_sdcard/Anime/GTO/GTO - 01.avi".
...while it's more likely to user select the /storage/... folder in settings, because when you open folder selection dialog, opened path is /storage/emulated/0/

I do know how to fix it, but some others don't.
It think, it's a bug, when you shouldn't select some folders to get this button appear.
Here goes a bug demonstration (screencast):

Here's a bug demostration:

Yes, I can reproduce the problem.

In my case my external sd card is mounted in /storage/extSdCard. One more location is exists on /mnt/extSdCard which is actually a link not a mount point. But, real path of the file will be /storage/extSdCard/*

When MX Player scans, it saves the real path to avoid file duplicate file listing.

when you set to scan only /mnt/extSdCard on video folders it will list file. But the file state is saved with the real path. Since it's outside of folder to be scanned it will be ignored & resume button will be hidden. As you add /storage/extSdCard to the list resume button will back.

It's because of lack of standardisation in mount point & unnecessary link of mount points across OEMs.

So, you have to be careful when selecting folders.

There are some workarounds that can fix the issue. I will discuss it with the developer. If you have any suggestions, it's highly appreciable.

I have attached the logs collected with mx log collector.

About suggestions...
For example, QuickPic doesn't show these links in Explorer mode (there is only "emulated" folder in /storage/), but it may produce some troubles for users, I think.

Media state saving is correct in this test build for every link/mount point, thanks!
