Noticed I never replied to this... :(
In 0.20-fixes and prior, the actual player and the preview pixmap player
used different methods of finding the file to play. This was corrected
with the addition of the Storage Groups code in SVN trunk.
Can you run the frontend with the "-v playback" option and see what file
it tries to play both for the preview player and when you actually try
to play the recording and it fails? Paste the relevant portions of the
log here and that may give a clue as to what is happening.
