Windows 7: "PLAY ALL" does not start music player if music is in sub folders?

"PLAY ALL" does not start music player if music is in sub folders?

Hi all
I have used the search button but could not yet found any solution to my question.

I am using a third party music player, MusicBee, to play my music, however if I select a folder in windows explorer of an artist that has more than one album in sub folders under the artist name then the "PLAY ALL" button does nothing.

If I select a folder without sub folders inside the PLAY button works fine and open MusicBee to play the music.

I also have VLC installed and if I right click on any music folder I get the Play with VLC option, how can I add this same option for MusicBee please.

Much appreciated

Welcome to Seven Forums Katvis. Try the options/settings for each player and see if there is a way to create a Playlist or Library to which you may add individual files to play. Check the MusicBee site too.
This is also the default action for Windows Media Player unless a Playlist is created.

EDIT:I found this:
Music Library
Scanning Media
Let me begin with the import of files into the library: there are various options how to do it. The most simple thing is probably to select the folders to scan. After this you will be asked if you want to import the statistics from iTunes or Microsoft's Media Player (You can also import the whole libraries).
If you have used MediaMonkey before and want the same library in MusicBee, no problem: Just use the script “Export to iTunes library.xml” and now you can import it simply.
