Problem playing music videos

I have hundreds of country music videos in mp4 format. I am trying to play them from a hard drive. When I play them by using the play/pause button there is a slight glitch.

They will play one after the other but any video under 5 minutes long leaves a period of time when nothing happens between songs. It will only play one video every 5 minutes.

If the video is 3 minutes long, the gap until the next song starts is exactly 2 minutes long. If the video is 4:45 long it will wait 15 seconds before the next one.

It doesn’t seem to matter if I play them random or not.

I have two wdtv live streaming players with their own hard drives. One is running firmare 2.01.68 and the other is running 1.15.10.

They both are doing the same thing. There is no spinning arrow or anything between videos, just black silence until 5 minutes exactly expires from the start of the song, then the next one plays.

I have found a workaround for the problem by joining two videos together so that the file is over 5 minutes long, but it will be tedious to have to do this for my whole collection.

Anyone else experience this?

Please post the full TEXT output of MEDIAINFO for such a file.
