E.g. if you load abc1.avi: all files abc2 to 5 will also be added to playlist and abc1.avi is ready to play or starts to play (may depend on other settings).
However, if you load abc3.avi, only abc4.avi and abc5.avi will be added automatically (with abc3.avi starting to play or ready to play).
How and why is that supposed to work?? What file format does it require? I can see that being useful for playing two or more disc movies, but for playing a folder with episodes it simply doesn't work... This "feature" actually doesn't make any sense if the "Always add all files in current directory to playlist" exists, and it doesn't do what its supposed to do.
