    hi, i have a folder with videoclips and i would like to be able to play them all one after the other. is this possible? cause mp just plays one and then goes back to the menu.

    thanks



    p.s i dont want to create a playlist cause if i add any video i would have to update the playlist manually each time

    I too would like to know how to achieve this. If it is possible, it is not straight-forward. This would be a good addition to the next release.

    MP stacks files if you name them:

    filename-CD1
    filename-CD2

    It basically creates a temporary playlist, but MP only sees the 1 entry. I don't know if it works with -CD3, -CD4, etc. And it would still be a pain for you to update each time you add a clip.

    oh thats a possible solution but as u say it would be a pain, also to have to change the file name of all the videoclips.

    no other solution to this?

    When I want to play all my videoclips in USCLIPS folder for example. I click ''info'' button on my remote or 2nd button of the mouse on the folder USCLIPS.

    and voilà !
