MythVideo Internal player can not find files

Description

I have a 2 box setup, the backend is on a headless pc, the front end is near the tv. both boxes have nfs access to the video drive (which is a seperate drive/mount point than the recorded shows drive).

When I set the mythvideo default player to "Internal" and select a file to play it fails to play the file. the main error seems to be:

RingBuf?(myth://:/Top Gear - [06x01] - 2005.05.22.avi): OpenFile?(myth://:/Top Gear - [06x01] - 2005.05.22.avi, 12)

not sure what to do to turn this into /<path to videos>/Top Gear - [06x01] - 2005.05.22.avi

If i change the default player to mplayer %s it works fine (the "Directory that holds videos" setting is correct)

here is a cut'n'paste from my 'mythfrontend -v all' log:

i must have had an older version of the code. after a clean copy of the libs and mythfrontend to the frontend box it works correctly

sorry 'bout that
