Whatever you did point myth's video storage group at contains that
file, or did last time you scanned, or it wouldn't be set up as a
storage group hosted file in the DB now.

No, I'm saying what I said before-- the URL that's being passed to
mplayer (myth://Videos@ tells us that
the metadata for the movie thinks it's storage groups hosted, which
won't work in mplayer.  not coincidentally, ISO playback also won't
work with the Internal player via storage groups right now.  Simply
mounting the directories is not enough, you need to remove the video
storage group and rescan with only the NFS mount (and a properly
configured frontend setting pointing to that dir) to be able to use
mplayer, or play ISOs with the internal player.
