Ubuntu 12.10 64 bits
Gnome-shell 3.6.2
Nautilus 3.6.3

I have installed SMPlayer. It has a useful (to me) option called "Add folder content to SMPlayer playlist" (or something like that, my native language is spanish). But Nautilus 3.6.3 doesn't show this option for folders. Has this option gone?

Just a quick idea but maybe SMPlayer used a script to do this and in new Nautilus the location of user scripts have changed. In such case you could resolve the issue by simply moving the script to the right path (and hopefully informing the SMPlayer's package). – Cyprian Guerra Feb 3 '13 at 1:32

The 'Open with' option for folders seems to have been removed in Nautilus 3.6.3. It has been reported as a bug. There is a patch that fixes the issue if you want to rebuild Nautilus yourself.

There is a patched version of Nautilus. You can install it by pasting the following lines in a terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mc3man/nauty-open
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

works for Ubuntu 13.04 and up
