I've tried this a few times, with various playlists of mine and this plain does not work on the video window, instead this just acts as another play/pause button... note that i tested with the latest binary, 0.6.0rc2 release 969.

I forgot to mention that i am talking about the keyboard short-cuts.

The actions for next and previous are "play_next" and "play_prev", assigned by default to the keys ">" and "<". They work for me (SMPlayer r974, Qt 4.2.3, SuSE 9.2 with a Spanish keyboard).
If they don't work for you, try to assign different keys to those actions.
I must be misconfiguration, but i was trying to use the playlist next/previous on the main window (or full screen window depending on the situation) and not the playlist window. I'm currently using ubuntu 7.10. ( Gutsy gibbon )
on a small side note i am certain that i have files in the playlist after and before the current playing file.
I've just tested in ubuntu 7.04 (Qt 4.2.3) and the playlist keys work. I also tested in windows with Qt 4.3.2 and it works too.
Does your mplayer prints its messages in English or in other language? Because the problem could be there, it relies on an English text to know when a file has stopped.
It appears that i misreported this bug... I should of stated that not all the key binding preferences work. I changed the keys bound to Next/Previous playlist item and it did not work, and it only worked with the default bindings.
Forget what I said about the language of the output from mplayer. I was thinking about another thing...
I've just changed the keyshortcuts for "play_next" and "play_prev" to "A" and "B", and they work perfectly.
Be sure the keys you choose are not already used for other actions, in that case they won't work. Also be sure you're changing the keys for actions "play_next" and "play_prev" and not for "pl_next" and "pl_prev".
