    When I leave the app (e.g. go to home) and go back (through task manager) it always jumps to the last video played before the one I'm playing now, but at the same timestamp i was before.

    Amazing app!!! And also best video player i wanna rate it 5 stars 🌟.. but.. I found 1 bug(not sure is that bug) the bug is :- in video player when we click on 3dots i.e. option there button hover effect doesn't work correctly like there is no hover effect in 'lock' and no hover after 'pop up player' and in last looks like 'lock' hover effect went to last one 😌. Thats all and thanks for this wonderful app (no issue in playback)
