This may or may not be a help for you: I use softdevice and softplay to do this. Softplay can play avi, mpeg files etc AND vdr recordings. So I have a link from my softplay media directory to /video Then you can use the playlist functions in softplay to play the episodes as you need. This may well work with xine, mplayer plugin etc etc: I don't know because I have not tried it. (The one problem with this is that softplay often tries to play resume.vdr, info.vdr etc recordings. It does not matter much, you just get a message saying "cannot play resume.vdr etc. One day I might hack up a list of "exclude this filename" into softplay) > I have a lot of children's programs stored, for example 52 episodes of > "Peppa Pig". :) The episodes are only 5 minutes each, so now I have to > interrupt my serious work (IRC :) ) every 5 minutes to start a new > episode, to keep the kids quiet for a while. :) This was almost the exact problem I had (although not for "Peppa".) Hopefully Daddy Pig can use this as a solution. :) > The recordings-listing doesn't have many buttons assigned for > directories, only "Open"..
