Because the Storage Group fallback code searches all Storage Groups, the
play file command should work without the 'Videos@' specified.  Without
a group, the default of 'Default' is assumed and if the file isn't
found there, then the other groups should be searched.

I'd be interested if this works for the original poster.

That being said, we should remove the @ restriction and probably remove
that whole sanity check.  I can't recall why I put that in there, but it
does predate the ability to specify an actual filename on the Network Control
command line.
