Is it possible to have continuous Music Videos playing with ATV?

For Ex.

If Im having a get to gether and want to have continuous Music Videos playing on the TV. I gave it a try and I would select a Music Video and it would play. But when that same Music Video ended, it would prompt me back to the Menu to select another one. Is there a way it can just continue playing whats next in line?

THnx

Couldn't you just make a playlist with all the music videos you want and set it to random order or something to that effect?

I did try that, and it did not work (it still only played 1 video, then prompted me to selected another).

Unless, Im doing something wrong.

Please let me know

Hey Tom, thnx again for the link. Unfortunatly it only addresses the issue if you want to continuously loop 1 video/movie over and over again.

What I would like to do is have a playlist with all my videos, set it to play and have it play them all without having to select each and every one after each one has ended.

Anybody else have any ideas?

Thnx again in advance

I see. I think you can create video playlists with nitoTV.
To use it, you have to hack your ATV. PM me for more info.
