    I am looking to create a workflow that gets 5 videos (videos are 10secs long and will change weekly overnight) from a shared server folder and have it playback on a monitor and continue looping those 5 videos until it is stopped.

    Now I've built it as follows

    Get Specified Finder Items
    Open Finder Items

    Try to add the loop command after those 2 boxes doesn't work.

    I then created the first 2 actions and saved as a workflow and tried to use the loop command to loop the workflow but it doesn't wait; it just loops it right away.

    Is there a way that this workflow will work. It is very simple.

    Hello and welcome.

    Sorry for the delayed response.

    I don't have much experience with Automator/AppleScript. I suggest posting your issue over at MacScripter. They may be able to help out.

    Let us know how it goes,
