    Hi,

    When I'm listen to/watching music videos in my "Music Videos" smart playlist, if I put it on shuffle, iTunes refuses to play past the first video I click on. It just says "Nothing Playing" afterwards. However, if I turn off shuffle and just play through in order (by Artist, Genre, etc.) it plays videos in succession fine. Anyone know how to fix this? It's happened since iTunes 7.

    Specs: iMac G5 10.5.4

    Thanks,
    Wolfgang

    Its because the music videos you have are probably set to 'skip when shuffling' When you look on the info of the file in the options tab, when the 'skip when shuffling' is ticked, it wont play the music videos. I did that for all of mine to avoid music videos from playing when listening to music on shuffle, but then couldn't shuffle the music video playlist.
