-The menu has the following entries.
+When a video file is selected, the start Menu will be displayed, unless it is
+disabled via the option "start menu" (see below). In the latter case the video
+will start playing immediately - unless a resume point is found, in which case
+the resume menu is presented.
+
+Start Menu
+
+\begin{description}
+\item[Play from beginning] Resume information is discarded and the video plays
+ from the start.
+\item[Resume time (min): x.x] Resume video playback at stored resume time x.x
+ (start of the video if no resume time is found).
+\item[Set start time (min)] A preview screen is presented consisting of a
+ thumbnail preview and a progress bar where the user can select a start time
+ by 'seeking' through the video. The video playback is started by pressing
+ the select button.
+\item[Quit mpegplayer] Exit the plugin.

\begin{description}
-\item[Show FPS] This option displays (once a second - if your video is
- full-screen this means it will get overwritten by the video and appear to
- flash once per second) the average number of frames decoded per second,
- the total number of frames skipped (see the Skip Frames option), the
- current time (in 100Hz ticks) and the time the current frame is due to be
- displayed.
-\item[Limit FPS] With this option disabled, mpegplayer will display the video
- as fast as it can. Useful for benchmarking.
-\item[Skip frames] This option causes mpegplayer to attempt to maintain
- realtime playback by skipping the display of frames - but these frames are
- still decoded. Disabling this option can cause loss of A/V sync.
+\item[Display Options] Opens "Display Options" submenu - see below.
+\item[Start Menu] (default: on) Enable/disable the start menu.
+\item[Clear all resumes: x] Discard all x resume points.
+\item[Quit mpegplayer] Exit the plugin.
