Ok, I did this ... and now I can see everything correctly in MythWeb, 
and in in the Myth Front end ... but I can't play anything in the front 
end!  It lists fine, finding the files and directories, etc.  But 
pressing [Play] just flashes black and comes back to the same screen 
(like when you have a broken video file).  Nothing is written to the
mythfrontend.log ???

it's a bit confusing.  I do have mplayer configured as an external 
player, and before making the change you suggested, static video played
