Can you give the output of:

Hello Actionparsnip
enclosed please find screenshot of where I have got so far.
Could you please help with the filling in of the details.
I mainly use VLC and SM player

John

Replying to the automated email and attaching a file doesn't work, you will need to use imagur or photobucket etc. This wil make a URL of the image we can view

Can you help with this problem?
