[Functionality] Video playlist
The option to create a playlist for video's in a folder would be great.
at the time the pixar movie "monsters inc" came out with the prefilm "for the birds". When I have those two files in the folder it would be great to have them play in the order prefilm - film, just like it happened in the theater.
A simple creation like folder name: monsters inc, with the files simply named 1 and 2 in there would be a great and simple start.

There is a work-around. I wanted to string a number of music videos to play in sequence but could not do it with Zappiti. Instead I installed VLC player and created a text playlist in the NAS folder in the .M3U format:
4 Non Blondes - What's Up.mp4
Ace Of Base - All That She Wants.mp4
Adele - Skyfall.mp4
BTS - Dynamite.mp4
Beverley Knight - Piece Of My Heart.mp4
Blancmange - Don't Tell Me.mp4
It plays fine but for some reason skips any video in 4K. This is simple, very desirable functionality to add to the explorer without too much programming effort.
It does seem that the focus at Zappiti is very much on functionality for playback of feature films. For most users feature films only make up part of their collection.
Dang! People have been asking for this since 2016. I'm assuming this seemingly simple feature will never be implemented?? C'mon Zappiti.
Provide a method to create a playlist for video files, so you can play several files without manually selecting and starting.
I very like it !!!!
i realy need it

For my home theater, I would love it if any of the players (or the NAS) supported a playlist, so i could show trailers, shorts, perhaps concession stand commercials and then main movie.
You are right, just like in the cinema with popcorn and watch the pre show (movie trailers and Dolby, atmos, dts or thx trailers and the main event of the evening
It would be great if it were possible to assign movies or series to a favorite playlist or folder. For example, you could display all children's favorite movies in one folder, or all movies you want to watch together, or something similar.
we like the Remote app, but it does not appear to allow chain play like in Explorer. Is there a way to loop a folder of files in the Media Center?
An option to play INTRO video .. or sequence of films
I agree, Playlist of video would be very important.
It will be nice to have option to play only files selected (highlighted yellow) as play list and also to be able play them random.
This apply for both Music and Video.
Presently random selection (even is in Music settings) do not work.
in Video settings there is no option to select random.

With this option you could make a set of video files and have Zappiti play them one other, e.g. a set of trailers or a trailer followed by a movie. Maybe it could be based on the existing grouping of video files or a separate feature
