     I've been working on the same issue and I came to a solution  
which consists in taking the sub-items back in the plugin’s medialist.  
I’m joining my  own patch, it was done to solve #2862 (https://trac.videolan.org/vlc/ticket/2862 

    In my opinion the plugin should rely on the API for its stability.  
I tried medialistplayer too but it seems quite unstable. As to me the  
media_player should have a working playlist at the API level as it is  
quite a basic functionality but this would involve more work.

Best Regards,
