maybe try going into default programs and reassigning your music file-types to open with vlc, occasionally i have to reset mine for winamp when i reinstall/update a codec pack

Hi there
Go to the top level of the music folder you want (probably album)
then from Windows explorer select open with VLC -- should then play all the files in that folder (i.e all the tracks).

Alternatively open VLC
then select OPEN FOLDER and select the ddirectory / album you want to play.

You might be selecting a playlist which might not contain all the tracks you want to play. I actually never bother with playlists.

Cheers

i think the op is referring to the play all tab that shows in explorer when a media folder is opened

occasionally this will happen with some of my music folders,
when the play all tab doesn't show, for me i highlight all the tracks and usually the play all tab shows then.
another way round it is to to make a playlist for that album or folder and save it in the same folder .clicking the playlist plays all.

i use mp3tag to generate a winamp playlist file.

I never use playlists, this problem remains unresolved.

i was just thinking the same as koolkat, try using a different player to see if the problem persists ,that way you can rule out vlc being the culprit.
as an experement select an mp3 and choose wmp in open with /default prog, then try opening a music folder and see if the play all works then.
revert when done.
