Is there a way to get XBMC to automatically play cd2 file of a multiple file movie?

You can click "Y" button on both files to stack them one after the other but their is a fairly obvious glitch when it happens. Not as disruptive as doing it yourself tho, laugh.gif

A way I've been doing it is just creating an .m3u file, which is just a playlist in text format that contains the files you want played.

I've seen that somewhere before but when I last tried it it didn't work. You sure that's not for XBMP?

Will give it another go, or the Y button method.

Cheers.

CD!, CD2 extensions were for xbmp,

for xbmc so long as 90% of the title is is the same then it'll stack them. e.g. simpsons.1501.pdtv.avi and simpsons.1502.pdtv.avi will get stacked with 1501 played first then 1502

as for stacking them there' should be a stack option in the on the sidebar, only prob there is a noticable lag as the next part gets cached although you could minimise by disabling the caching, from the onscreen (in video playback) menu
