So now you say that
Well the example does play media ( video ) but was more for you to look at the code for a player.
Getting a list of files from outside of Hype is very easy as all your doing is passing on a list of paths...
I have put an example that does this up for an image player but I have not posted the code yet.
It uses AJAX to get a file list.
To help anyone help you, can offer more info on things like are you wanting this server side or client side when listing files to play and any other relevant details
