Thanks for the suggestion. I have already tried mplayer and 
its variant GUIs and still have problems and mplayer will 
not play dvd menus so I have no navigation either. I've 
always preferred Xine or Kaffeine for multimedia.

I have failed to get any BSD system I've installed to try 
out to actually play a movie or play a music cd. I'm now at 
a point that I'm thinking I'll have to go back to Linux 
which I didn't really want to do. I'm still willing to try, 
but don't expect to resolve this any longer.

I've asked here, on the DesktopBSD list and the FreeBSD list 
and sadly gotten no help in addressing this. It does seem 
most likely from what happens in trying to play multimedia 
that it is a problem of location, but what I do not know 
and don't know how to find out.
