How can i play a spread of videos?

FileStreams filename pin is not spreadable and therefore only one file a time can be played back. See Video File Playback for alternatives.

I need to play many video loops, one after the other

See FileStream2 (DShow9) and Video File Playback for alternatives

Looping Files

You can attach a FrameDelay (Animation) to the Duration output and connect this to Loop End Time or you can type a number of seconds that is greater than the files duration and this will also loop the file.

If there's no sound track in the video the Speed parameter will not work

using inspektor you can set the filestreams Reference Clock) to System. That might make the ((pin:Speed work for streams without audiotrack
