Problem with this is that they won't show the video of the next video playing. You'll hear audio but not see the video, which renders it kind of useless.
I guess if it were that easy he wouldn't have asked. ;) :p
Edit: I guess he might have. :D

I have not gotten it work because of the above problem. You might want to send Apple feedback about that so they'll change it.

Perhaps next time someone tries to help you out, you should treat them with a little more respect. I can't stand it when people ask for help and then treat those that are trying to help like morons. :mad:

I have created numerous video playlists by creating playlists with just video in it and have had no problems. I have six on my iPod as we speak, and they go to the next element in the playlist just fine. I use them primarily for TV shows that I've recorded and just go from one file to the next with absolutely no problems.

Do they work for you in iTunes too? Because for me the video will shut off when it switches to the next video.

Yep, it goes straight in to the next file just fine in both full-screen and mini-screen modes.

That is too weird. It doesn't do that for me. I wish it would though. I'll try trashing the .plist and see if that helps.
