    Hi Bazz,

    Unfortunately the RadMediaPlayer control does not support the desired functionality. However you can implement it manually by traversing all files into the folder and build player files for the control. Similar approach is used into the following demo:
    http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/media-player/examples/overview/defaultcs.aspx

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks for the info ! I checked out your link to the example that shows a video selection bar to the right of the actual player, and the ability to manually load videos that way. That seems like an acceptable work around, however it does require alot of overhead (time/effort) to get it set up. I would suggest my request as a future enhancement for the Media Player, where you can just point it to a directory and it will play all the files within it if the supporting parameters "SourceDicrectory" (string) and "CycleAllFilesInSourceDirectory" is checked (Boolean). The additional option to have each video start automatically, or require the user to start them would be good too, to save on unnecessary bandwidth, noise etc.
