playing videos in certain order!

Hi guys,
I’m quite new using jitter, I was wondering if someone could help to play a sequence of videos -3 videos to be precise- in order.
I found this pacth, but it plays the videos randomly which is not what I’m looking for.
An idea or suggestion will be also appreciated,

well, an easy fix is to name your movies in numerical order in your folder and have a counter object “count” each clip in your umenu in the order you want, you’ll just have to trigger it based on loop points, the duration/time equation or a framecount workaround.

name your movies in alphabetical or numerical sequence. populate a umenu with your movie files, then use a counter to move through the umenu in numerical sequence, outputting the file names to be read into Use @loopreport 1 @loop 0 in your movie object to send a bang back to your counter when the movie is finished, and thus nudge the counter output value up one, sending out the next filename in your umenu
