Mike,

Are you bringing in one player per music file? You don't need to do that (unless that's how you want it). You can have one Player control and then point the control to the music file by setting its 'filename' property.

Hope this helps,

  I am making a jukebox with rev 1.1.1 just to relearn the little I knew about HC. 
  All seems to be going well with it except for having to enter all of the music files 
  manually. 
  I'm hoping for a few ideas as to how to automate getting new referenced controls for a player. I see no option to include an entire folder for this. 
  As it is, I have to go under file to New Referenced Control to Quicktime Supported File..., bring it in and name each player. That's pretty tough on the eyes after a few gigs of music. Any pointers(assuming there is another way)? 
  By the way, I'm running RR on a PC , win98se.
