USE "SMPLAYER"

sounds like you may not be the owner of the file and just a 644 and/or chow nay help.
Not sure what you're getting at there. VLC is kind of my SD movie player. It however takes a back set to XBMC for my HD stuff. SMPlayer didn't work well the last time I used it on my Atom netbook (though I didn't try figuring that out).

As for this thread I'm updating the OP so that it's clear chown solved the problem. Thanks for the discussion and help though guys.

I think it's really important early on to learn how permissions work and how to actually use chmod, so you don't have too much access and leave yourself too open. It's actually pretty simple to understand and there are two separate syntax if you have trouble remembering the numbers.

If you want to view something's permissions use:
Code:
$ ls -l
most people like to alias this to just: ll.

Code:
$ chmod ABCD file
A = user permissions
B = group permissions
C = other permissions
D = all permissions (this one is rarely used)

Now for the numbers:
1 = execute
2 = write
4 = read

Why does chmod 777 do everything? 1+2+4=7 read,write,execute and then for all three groups. Just add the numbers of what options you want together to get them together. That a little too hard? Okay there's a little bit easier:

Code:
$ chmod u+rwx,g+rwx,o+rwx,a+rwx file
u,g,o,a is user, group, other, all just like before
you can use + or - in order to add or remove the permissions you put afterwards
if you use = instead it will clear all prior permissions and only assign what you feed it
r,w,x is read write execute
Whats the difference in using

chmod 777 file

and

chmod u+rwx,g+rwx,o+rwx,a+rwx file

they are the same correct?

If you do
Code:
$ chmod a+rwx
A=ALL so you don't really need the rest. But yeah,
Code:
$ chmod a+rwx file
$ chmod 777 file
do the same.
