I have a bunch of short films, music videos, and personal videos taken with my digital camera. It would be great if at the end of the currently playing video it would just default to jump to the next one in the folder or playlist.

Even putting the option in would be great but it sucks trying to hit next at the exact moment the video stops.....or if you did skip through a few the highlighted video is the first one you selected. if that could update to the last video you were playing regardless of selection or skipping to the next vid...that would help also.

Thanks
Rob

Isn't there already a shuffle mode (taek a look in the video settings!) that does exactly what you want when you press the PLAY button instead of ENTER?

ahh just not very user friendly, if you go to the repeat menu and go to repeat all not repeat one it will play through. Could be laid out better then that though.

You can also press the SHUFFLE button during video playback multiple times to toggle between the available shuffle modes!

What would be really nice is if the system would recognize multiple file names unding in CD1/CD2 or Part1/Part2 as being one contiguous movie and play them one after the other gaplessly.

This is difficult because there are no standards for this sort of thing.

What you can do instead is just hit the Play button on the remote - it'll automatically play everything in the folder.

The play trick is neat.

Actually, recognition implementation is not that hard

if left(filename1, len(filename1)-1) = left(filename2, len(filename1)-2) and texttoint(right(filename1,1) + 1 = texttoint(right(filename2,1) then play.

For multi-part movies, having the last three characters before the extension set as CD1/CD2 is pretty much the standard.  95% of files are labled that way, and 95% of the rest are part1/part2.  This feature has been present (and working splendidly) in XBMC for five or six years.

The hit-play-to-play-all works fine if you have all your movies separated out into individual folders.  It doesn't work so well if they're all in one folder.
