Hi, i upgraded my MB to the new 2.5.2v , got the mb music plugin, refreshed all my images for my music albums, and i can see all the backdrops and cs covers. But! there’s no player! after i press the play button, it directs me to the media center interface! is that the best it could do? i mean theres a list of songs, i can even see the lyriks! but cant play one song after another and stay on the media browser interface? would it be like that for every song i choose? ill pick a song go back to the media center interface, press back, and then press back again to get to a new artist? cause if it does its rather pointless and i wasted half a day just for refreshing. PLEASE tell me im doing something wrong here! thanks, shay.
Media Browser and the Music Plugin itself is simply a “skin” or “theme” for WMC. It is not a replacement for it. Both of these still use the Windows Media Player for actual playback of your media. These are both simply a different interface to display your media.
If you stop what is playing and hit the back button you will find yourself in MB again.
If you hit the * button or play on a folder you will get the choice to “play from here” and “play all” etc.

It’s theme dependent. In the free themes, Diamond & Subdued show a menu:
Play All, Shuffle Play and Queue All.
Default, Chocolate and Simplicity don’t. I’d suggest trying another theme and see if that helps.
