Hi,
I did it this way:
Let's say MP is TMediaPlayer, NowPlaying is track number, EndPosition is end position of track, track list is in ListBox1 (track list is just tracks numbers, i.e 01,02,03), CurTrack is track list's index, CDTimer is TTimer (interval=100).
.
{Set positions and track number for first track in a ListBox1}
CurTrack:=0;
NowPlaying:=strtoint(ListBox1.Items[CurTrack]);
MP.Position:=MP.TrackPosition[NowPlaying];
EndPosition:=MP.TrackPosition[NowPlaying]+MP.TrackLength[NowPlaying];
.
procedure TForm1.CDTimerTimer(Sender: TObject);
begin
  if MP.Position>=EndPosition then begin
    CDTimer.Enabled:=false;
    if MP.Mode=mpPlaying then MP.Pause;
    inc(CurTrack);
    NowPlaying:=strtoint(ListBox1.Items[CurTrack]);
    MP.Position:=MP.TrackPosition[NowPlaying];
    EndPosition:=MP.TrackPosition[NowPlaying]+MP.TrackLength[NowPlaying];
    if MP.Mode=mpPaused then MP.Resume;
    CDTimer.Enabled:=true;
  end;
end;

it seems to work now but when you change tracks, it stops and you have to press play again.

The problem is with this line:

if MP.Mode=mpPaused then MP.Resume;

The point is, that when you call MP.Pause, MP.Mode sets to mpStopped, not mpPaused.
You must add some variable (i.e PlayPressed:boolean), that indicates that Play button was pressed by user. Set PlayPressed to true, when user presses Play button. Set PlayPressed to false, when user presses Stop button. Then change the line to

if (MP.Mode=mpStopped) and PlayPressed then MP.Resume;
