There are methods in the pipeline that may support that but no browser supports the new methods yet.  You will need a script to "watch" the video and detect the end of the current selection by testing the "ended" property and then change the "currentSrc" property to a new selection.  I think you might have to start the new selection with the play() method.

The list of audio/video properties and methods is available at http://www.w3schools.com/tags/ref_av_dom.asp

Make sure you look at the list of supporting browsers for anything you use, because the support for some properties and methods is still a little thin.
