i am not sure, if this will work.

As i remember well, the "play" command will create a temporary player to 
play the audio/video
and that player will be deleted after the audio/video is finished.

So maybe it should read: start player "sound1"

If your players are on one card, then you could put something like this 
in the card-script.

on playstopped  the_player
##the short name of the player that has stopped is an argument to this 
   switch the_player
      case "sound1"
           start player "sound2"
      case "sound2"
           start player "sound3"
   end switch
end playstopped

Not tested, but should work ;-)

Hope this helps.
