Thanks again Erik. I'll take a closer look but for now something is not
quite right as the web server still sends MPLAYER_HOME=/var/www/.mplayer
(copied below), which worked before:
Env variables: SERVER_SOFTWARE=lighttpd/1.4.31
HTTP_USER_AGENT=Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36
(KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/38.0.2125.104 Safari/537.36
home dir is: /var/www<br>
