I noticed when next track is a video, the video is not played automatically unless pushing pause button(when playing music).
I confirmed this problem happens even all plugins are disabled.
I also noticed when playlist contains audio books, they are skipped.

I don't think this is a bug. Assuming you've set up an external video player via Preferences > Player > video player, videos have to be manually launched.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 or 3.6 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

Hmm... So videos are not played automatically?
This post(  https://getmusicbee.com/forum/index.php?topic=12302.msg74784#msg74784 ) says:

in the Plugin class Initialise() function:
about.Type = PluginType.VideoPlayer;

and create a function as follows:
        public bool PlayVideo(string[] urls)
        {
...your code
            return true;
        }


When MB detects that function in a plugin it will call it instead of invoking an external .exe
But when such a plugin is used, videos are not played automatically?

To the best of my knowledge they are not.

But you are the developer of the plugin you referenced, which if I read it correctly, allows continuous play of videos . If you're having problems with the API, you should post it as an additional reply on the MB API thread you referenced.

I am locking this thread as your post belongs with the API thread you referenced.
