    Been meaning to ask the same question since, maybe September. Only began recently using Mezzmo Android on my Sony TV. I keep seeing updates and keep installing them. But playing all videos in a folder simply does not work. I'm using the internal player, the option to queue all in the playlist is selected, and when I play a video, I can see the message at the bottom that videos are queued. When the video ends however, nothing happens. It's as if the queue all option is not enabled. About a month or two back, the behavior was slightly different in that it would try to play the next video but the spinning wheel was just there forever until I turned the TV off.

    Two entries in the device list for this TV. One is the TV itself - matched by MAC ID - and I just changed the profile from Sony Bravia (detected by Mezzmo) to Conceiva Mezzmo (Android). Next there's this Mezzmo (Android Bravia 4K) device with the Conceiva Mezzmo (Android) profile and an IP address of 0.0.0.0. Not sure what that is. But if I disable that, videos stop playing.

    Can you please check in the playlist view to see if multiple video files are listed?

    Never really thought to look there - still learning the UI. But yeah, 46 are there. So I started one FROM there and when it finished, the list returned and the one that had just completed showed "playing".

    <update>

    Left it sitting just to make sure nothing would play. The first one still indicates "playing". Selecting ANY one listed there and attempting to play it shows this briefly on the bottom of the screen...

    I tried it on a Fire TV here and played two short videos which played one after the other. Can you please try playing a short video to see if the next video plays?

    Ok, a couple of 60 second videos.
    Play - indicates 2 added to playlist and video 1 begins
    After video 1 ends, the spinning wheel starts and then hangs after 1/2 second, followed by the app returning to the main screen and messages at the bottom about devices being "added" As if the app restarted. But at this point the app is corrupt and unpredictable. The scenario above can't be repeated without completely exiting the app.

    I'll note that Roku, Apple TV (using VLC), and an eight year old Sony Google TV play multiple videos without any problem from this server.

    Some months ago I did uninstall and reinstall Mezzmo on the TV but that made no difference.

    The app does a metadata request before playing the file so possibly this is failing or the request for the file is failing. Can you please enable diagnostic logging http://www.mezzmo.com/wiki/doku.php?id=using_logging&s[]=diagnostic then after restarting your Mezzmo media server try playing the two short files again and then after the second one fails to play send us the logs at support [at] conceiva [dot] com so we can investigate further.

    Ok, that may take some time - as I've found a workaround. Kodi. I'd installed it long ago but never did much other than see if it could play media from my Mezzmo server. I never did bother installing the Mezzmo Add-on.

    Using Kodi it seems to create a playlist too when I tell it to play everything in a folder. It plays everything in succession without any problem.
