    Mythbuntu frontend won't play videos

    My mythbuntu frontend will not play videos (I have tried .mp4 and .mkv). VLC will play the video outside of the frontend perfectly, but when I go into the frontend and try to play it, the computer will lock up for 5 seconds then go back to the frontend. I have tried switching the player to VLC, and when I do that I see VLC pop up quickly in the background and then disappear again. I have an older mythbuntu setup that works great, but I'm building a new server so I used Mythbuntu 11.04. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    My video card is an 8800 GTS 640 MB.

    you need to tell us what version of mythtv you are using, and what your mythfrontend.log file says when you try to play a video.
