Library for the Media

I think allowing the user to click a media (file) from a document library then playing it directly to the Player would be good. At the minute I'm using the standalone MediaPlayer WebPart where only single file can be played

The web part already supports an incoming connection from a document library. Are you having a problem with it?

If you add the web part and the document library both to a page (the same page), and then while the page is still in edit mode, click the drop-down menu in the titlebar for either the web part or the document library. Then click the "Connections" sub-menu. If you are editing the web part then there will be an option to "Get Data From..." or if editing the document library then there will be a "Provide Data To". Click that and then select the title of the other object. After a few moments, a dialog window should appear that prompts you to select a source column from the Document library. Select "Document URL" from this list. This will establish a data connection between the two objects on the page, and the document library itself will gain a new column with radio buttons that you can use to select the current video to be played.
