@adrian.s Had a look last night, and the owner, group, permissions all look to be good for the frontend.
The logs are kind of interesting though, the same lines appear over and over again I don't know what it means but any time I see the word error I get the feeling I'm onto something
The first line in particular is interesting to me, if it can't parse the stream properly could that be a problem?
There is nothing else in the logs though, it's literally just full of these lines over and over again.....

@stiofanD Yes you're right, I shouldn't make assumptions. I guess I was blinded by the fact that avi's and mp4's play flawlessly even hi-def ones leading me to look elsewhere first. I'll try playback on a windows machine when I get home just to be on the safe side.
I don't know if it's relevant or not, but for my setup I don't have a hi-def TV and everything is played from s-video to a scart port on my TV that supports s-video. So when I say hi-def plays flawlessly what I mean is it plays without a glitch on my TV not in true high definition though.
With that in mind my graphics card is pretty meagre I'm afraid. An nvidia GeForce4 MX 440 AGP 8x with 64Meg ram to be exact. The problem is it has to fit in a half height slot, it has to be agp, and it can't be very long as it's only a desktop type chassis and a small one at that. I couldn't buy one of those, so I hacksawed the top of the slot of a half height size card I already had lying around.
It takes everything I've thrown at it so far, and it doesn't have to do very high resolutions or anything so is should be fine... Shouldn't it?
