JWPlayer Playlists Auto Advance with HWD Mediashare

I am using HWD Mediashare which has a JWPlayer plugin, and have added a playlist within HWD Mediashare, but the playlist does not advance to the next video after the first one has completed ... I am using version 6 of the plugin, and the media player configuration is set to AutoPlay in the HWD configuration ... When I first created the playlist, the autoadvance to the next video, etc., seemed to work, but now it does not and I can't get it to do it again ... If anyone can help with this I would really appreciate it ... even if I have to modify the player code if you can tell me which lines to add/edit to make the autoadvance work.

I am not familiar with HWD Mediashare. Can you post a link to your test page so we can troubleshoot further?

Does the same thing happen in JW7?

The link to the JWPlayer with HWD Mediashare playlist is:

But in order to get to it you have to first go to:

and sign in with:

Then click on "Watch Now" in the menu at the top of the page.
This will bring you to the same link I first mentioned with JW Player.

What I am really trying to do is to edit the programming of the JW Player so that I can add a time schedule function to play specific videos in the playlist at specific times of the day, such as:

Video1 at 12:00am for 1.5 hours, Video2 at 1:30am for 1.5 hours, video3 at 3:00am for 0.5 hours, Video4 at 3:30am for 0.5 hours, etc ...

The system time for this would be used at the client's end so that the movies would play at the same times/intervals in their time zone.

I believe that this is possible, given instruction and access to the correct programming and files to edit

We have an old example for this at where first set up the player with a playlist. In an .on(‘ready’) function, we determine the viewer’s local time from the browser and then check each playlist item’s duration to see where they should start in the playlist:

playerInstance.on('ready', function() {
        var seconds = new Date().getMinutes()*60 + new Date().getSeconds();
        var playlist = playerInstance.getPlaylist();
        var offset = 0;

        for (var index=0; index < playlist.length; index++) {
            var duration = Math.round(playlist[index]['duration']);
            if(offset + duration > seconds) {
            } else {
                offset += duration;
