How: automatically. Why: IMHO this seems obvious enough (Other approach: simply because its conveniently programmed that way to support BS.Player's users' wishes.)
This way you can e.g. also watch the videofiles (no menues etc !) of a Blue-ray DVD (depending on the compression format used) copied to your HD (...\STREAM\00000.m2ts .... 00001.m2ts etc.) i.a. assuming that you allowed - upon installation - BS.Player to internally install the codecs/filters it needs, such as e.g. Haali.
It works for any video format (and I personally wouldn't mind if it would also work for audio (e.g. think of the tracks of a spoken book)).
It actually also does work for a folder with episodes, provided these are properly numbered consecutively (otherwise I wouldn't have suggested it).
It really does make good sence as it concerns two different features; if you do not see that "all files" (=all media files) differs from (video)files with (same name exept for the) consecutive numbering, well then I can't really help you.
What's more: the "all files" feature was added comparatively recently if compared with the "auto-adding" feature which actually dates back to the early days of BS.Player and it was already implemented in the pre 1.x versions of BS.Player.
To the contrary: it does exactly what it is supposed to do! (Did you try? If so: what BS.Player version/build are you using?)

When posting always mention your computer's OS and the version and build number(!) of BS.Player as used by you,
as well as - if applicable and especially when encountering problems - the type(s) of the file(s) mentioned in your post.
