What's the best way to display multiple videos. I would like them to play one after the other and then loop after they play. However, I would also like links that the user can click to play the video that they want.

Any ideas on format and player options. Thanks for any advice

Since this is the Flash forum, guessing you mean in a Flash player? Take one of the many Flash player samples from the web and modify it; I recommend using the ones that use an external XML file for ease of maintenance.

Basically you write a player that imports an external XML file to get the list of videos to play. When you add new ones, you just upload the .flv and the updated XML file. No need to modify the .swf every time.

For user selection, you can devise controls within the Flash that also update based on the imported XML file, or use Javascript to communicate with your .swf.
