Apparently a link to file:// is not allowed by the default
installation of Firefox on Linux or Windows or IE. You get errors

Security Error: Content at http://192.X.Y.Z/mythweb/tv/recorded may
not load or link to file://192.X.Y.Z/video/3121_20080315222800.mpg.

(I've obfuscated the real IP address of my backend but the error
occurs even if I put a bogus ip or hostname there. The error message
has whatever you put in the first instance and the IP of the web
server in the second)

I would assume this is a vulnerabiliy they won't allow.
