Well, I just tried it and it worked okay. I know from my own experience 
to strip the query stuff after the file name.

It's not always necessary to strip it, and sometimes it's needed to get 
the right file, but, in this case it always seems to muck up mplayer.

You maybe just want to edit the playlist.
