Question 'bout playlist on mplayer

Maybe this is the dummest question or just need a couple of glasses, but I kinda lost

Where is the option to repeat the playlist in mplayer?

Do I need to chance the code in some configuration file?

Do I need to install a plugin or something like that?

Well, that is, I searched on the network to find where I can find/use the option, but I can't find anything concret about this matter

Thanks for any response

Thanks, this will help to start 'cuase I still have a question:

This metod work very well from the console, and if I had a playlist created, but what's happen if I do not have a playlist created? I mean, I have lots of videos and stuff like that, but I use the gui of mplayer so, I just put in the playlist (through the GUI) the videos I want to watch in that moment

This means that is some like a random playlist, I can use the -loop option you gave me to star the Mplayer (through the launcher button from KDE for example) but I don't know what target put in the playlist, I think that have to be an "default playlist" that should be the target to the option -playlist ....

Any idea 'bout this?

I really appreciate the help

Editing:Well, i find the default playlist, it's in the user folder/.mplayer/

Now, I think that there's some way to put an option on the gui.conf to repeat that playlist, something like Repeat_Playlist = 1 or some similar, I will be asking goole, if you have some ideas.....

Well, I still don't find a solution for this, it has to be possible to repeat the playlist trouhg the GUI instead from the command line, from the command line works perfect if I have a playlits created

The problem is generate this loop using the temporal playlist (

Maybe I have to create a button to do this, or add some line in gui.conf, i've been searching but still don't find the answer.....

Any ideas?

Thanks by your responses
