#5373 closed defect (wontfix)

watched recording becomes "unwatched" if you watch it again and exit short of the end

A recording that is marked as watched will have the "watched" tag removed if you start playing the recording for the second time and exit short of the end of the recording.

A recording that is already marked as watched should never be able to "auto" be set to unwatched unless the user explicitly changes the status.

The original patch/functionality behaved in the way you describe, watched recordings could only manually be set un-watched but this caused more problems than it solved. e.g. Users editing recordings, multi-person household and users starting to re-watch a watched recording were all caught out because recordings were expired early.

It was determined that in most use cases users would not start watching a recording from the beginning and still expect the recording to be marked as 'watched' if they hadn't reached the end. It's easier for the minority to manually mark a recording watched than it is for everyone to remember they need to 'un-watch' a recording.
