A content-presenting system present digital content for a local user, and facilitates sharing a presentation state for digital content with remote devices. During operation, the system can detect a presentation-controlling event, which alters the presentation of the digital content at the content-presenting device. In response to detecting the presentation-controlling event, the system generates content-control information for the digital content. This content-control information can include a location-independent structured name associated with the digital content, and includes a presentation state for the digital content.
