no VLC bookmarks

I can't get bookmarks to work in VLC. I'm running Windows 10 on a laptop.

Don't know if this is currently relevant, but FWIW, there is this note:

note: loading bookmarks is broken thru version 1.0.5. The last working version I know of was in the 0.8 series.

May be someone else is more familiar with the current status?

Thank you. Looks like, if I switch to the earlier version, then bookmarks may work, but that will give an older version with known but unpatched virus vulnerabilities. But at least now I know, and if I need it badly enough, I can always consider the earlier version.

edit: re your ^link, quote;
If you wish to save bookmarks this is how it can be done.
Set up the Bookmark list and then save a Playlist. From now on, anytime you open the playlist, VLC will load the bookmarks.
Open the playlist dialog with menu selection View-Playlist. The playlist window has a menu selection Manage that allows opening and saving playlists.
Opening a saved playlist will also load an associated bookmark list as long as the option "Enable parsing of EXTVLCOPT: options" is enabled. To check this setting choose "Settings -> Preferences -> Input / Codecs -> Demuxers -> Playlist".


For my up-to-date VLC version, the above file tree is slightly different; and when I finally found and clicked on 'Demuxers', there was a large drop-down menu, but the 'Playlist' option was not on it.
My only possible work-around -before shutting down VLC or the laptop- is to write it down.
Or come to think of it, do a screenshot.

Does either VLC or MPC-BE have ALC -Automatic Level Control- for Volume?

@holt:
These might help:

You will be able to find these and several other useful links if you do a duckduckgo search on "vlc Help". You will probably find the answers to most of your VLC-related questions at those various links.

I reset all my vids from playing with VLC, to play with MPC-BE instead, and if I just left click on any vid file, it does.
But if I want to play a whole folder of short music vids, it stubbornly wants to play using VLC. If I right click on the folder and go to the drop down menu, it refuses to give me the option to always use MPC-BE instead.
The only way I have of getting it to use MPC-BE to play a whole folder of music vids, is to right click and hold on the folder, and drag it across Desktop to the MPC-BE shortcut.

I found my original .exe download of MPC-BE, and reinstalled it, and this gave me the option to 'associate' all video files with it. Now, when I right click on a folder of vids, the drop down menu gives me both choices; VLC and MPC-BE. :)
