    Default Play Next MP3

    I'm using IrfanView 4.52 x64. I play an MP3. I see the main IrfanView window plus the MP3 Player window. I mouse over Right Arrow in the IrfanView toolbar. The tooltip says, "Next file in folder/list." But when I click on that arrow, the MP3 Player seems to load a null file. It says, "Type: no file loaded." Clicking on the right arrow again does not change anything. I have to manually close the MP3 Player in order for the Right Arrow icon to work. Is this a bug, or am I overlooking some better way to play the next MP3 in the folder?

    It works OK for me. Have you tried opening the next file from the File Open menu instead of using right arrow?

    Are there any other files in the folder besides MP3 files? Perhaps there are some hidden files, so enable viewing of hidden files in Windows Explorer to make sure.

    Yeah, it used to work for me too. Not sure why it quit.

    There definitely are other ways of opening files. But I'm asking about the right arrow functionality. It still works with WAVs. The problem seems to be specific to the MP3 player.

    This folder contains only MP3s.

    Check what you have in Settings, Extensions, for loading Custom file types.

    I have selected "Load custom file types: Load default extensions." If I switch to "Load only associated types while moving through folder," the problem remains the same. I have IrfanView associated with MP3 among other filetypes.

    What's the reason for asking about custom file types? It's a folder containing MP3s only. The issue isn't whether it can play MP3s. It's playing MP3s without problems. The problem seems to be rather that the previous session of the MP3 player is not closing before IrfanView attempts to play a new MP3.

    Whether I use the Internal player or the External player (requires plugin), it works for me. The next MP3 plays and the previous one stops playing.
