the L key seems to do an A-B Loop. Sadly, I'm looking for a regular repeat loop.

Lowercase "l" is A-B looping, capital "L" toggles infinite looping of the current file. :)

Hey guys does anyone also know when you have loaded in multiple videos how you can skip to the next video? Is there a shortcut for this?

Yes, you can use < and > keys to jump between videos.
