AFAIK there is no support for selecting and playing a file via the web
interface. You might want to look for a video jukebox program to fill your
needs. Myth can be used to select and play your videos using a remote or a
wireless keyboard (not a mouse) if that is an option for you. If all you
want is to play videos, myth is overkill.
