When I watching videos after video in a specific folder fiinshes it goes back to the menu instead of playing the next video in the folder.
I have searched high and low for the setting and can't find where I can enable that when one video is finished it automatically plays next one in the folder.

Can you please help?

    Can you say how the files are named, they do have to follow a naming convention to work as a single file.

    What happens if in MP config\video "every movie has its own directory" is enabled.

    All the files are in the same directory...

    For instance I am watching Scrubs.S06E05.avi right now and file next in line is Scrubs.S06E06.avi.
    They are all in Scrubs Season 5 folder.

    I just switched from Tvix 4100SH and on it it would automatically play next file in line after you finished watching current one.

    In MP currently when one episode is done I have to pick up the remote and click on the next file myself...when you are watching 6-7 20 minute episodes in a row you can see how that can get annoying.
    It just seems a little bit strange that such a simple task is not flat out configurable in MP.

    rekenaar...THANKS for the help!

    Playlist thing worked just fine, I tried TV Series plugin, but it also went back to folder contents instead of playing the next episode.

    Once again, many thanks.
    I am truly surprised MP doesn't support that natively, as any other media player does.
