WD Media Player Won't continuously play streaming media from computer over wireless LAN

I have a bunch of cartoons and short episodes on my computer’s hard drive.  I bought the WD media player Live so that i could play the videos in sequence or random order non-stop like a tv show marathon without having to get up and hit the next button each time.  My player simply does not do that.  Weather i go to the folder containing my videos or the *.wpl playlist in the media server, the player still stops after the first video.  I am able to scan through each video and press skip to next and back no problem, i just can’t get the unit to play the next video automatically.  I’ve messed with the settings a bit, but nothing really allows the player to do what i want.

Press PLAY instead of ENTER.
