Thanks for the help!

Correct on the settings being wrong. Mplayer was indeed listed instead
of internal. I guess that reload of my old data brought that bit back in.

I still have that screwed up hierarchy though. Now when I go to play a
file I get: "Failed to open file in /media/myth/videos/Movies/"

Of course it failed. The Movies directory is "/media/drive1/Movies/". I
checked (Backend Setup)>Storage Directories>Videos. It points to the
correct location. So I checked (Frontend)>Utilities/Setup>Setup>Media
Settings>Video Settings>General Settings>'Directory that holds videos'
and that is blank.

Does anyone know where it might be pulling back this odd path from?

I am digging around trying to find that out right now.

Thanks again for the help!
