Projector - Request for new function - Single launch of multiple folders

I am currently working on a new Projector album, that will be a "best of" my travel photos. In addition to the classical manual navigation folder by folder, I would like to add the posibility to launch all folders one after the other.

https://philippecharles.jalbum.net/BestOf%20Travel/

Questions:
1) Is this feature technically possible (e.g. due to the computer/Internet safety limitations)?
2) Is this feature related to jAlbum in general ? or to the skin?
3) Does this feature already exist (didn't found it yet)?
4) Does this feature require some HTML5 or json coding?

Thank you for your feedback.

Doesn't this setting do that? Projector > Lightbox > Main image > Behavior > After the last image: Next folder's first image

Thanks Jeff,
This is a good hint indeed, I will try.
Ideally, it would be good to let the user choose between "manual" navigation, or "auto" by chaining the folders.

You can choose between linking to neighboring folders or no link. What would be the "manual" and "auto" mode you mentioned?

Thanks Laza for your response.

My idea was to give people the choice between:
1) A "manual" navigation by selecting the folder you want > this is the default navigation with projector.
2) An "automatic" navigation, with e.g. a separate command or specific folder selection called "view all" which will link all folders one after one.

Which of the two?

1. Completely flat structure: all images appear in the thumbnails panel and the gallery starts with this flat album

2. Link one folder after the other: you start with the folders album, but then when you navigate to a subfolder and view the pictures it jumps automatically to the next folder after reaching the last one. The same happens during a slideshow.

Option 2 is what I suggested above.

I think PhilippeCharles is asking for a way for the site visitor to choose which kind of slideshow he wants to see.

But IMO, if you have to provide a lot of instructions to the visitor about how to use the album, it's probably too complicated, and you should think twice about doing it. ;)
