Well, sir, you may want to check that build of the frontend. I 
downloaded it twice and they both seem borked up.
Are there any other locations to get frontend with the plugins? I'm 
looking for 0.18.1 stable.

And thanks for the tips on mplayer.

My last go-round, I used the Apple DVD player as well. It works just fine.
But, I am trying to get the full Myth Experience (minus all the pain and 
suffering!!!) this time.
