Sorry, what I was referring to was, when I select Vidoes->Files->Add 
Video Source, and then select Browse in the dialog popped up, to add a 
new share point as the source, the resultant dialog has an entry for 
every mount point I have except the nfs mount point. Besides my nfs 
share, I have 3 mount points for fedora partitions, 3 mount points for 
Ubuntu partitions, and, 3 mount points for Windows partitions, and the 
navigation listed above shows all 9 of those mount points as well as 
normal 'root filesystem' and samba etc. I can navigate to the nfs mount 
point using 'Root filesystem', but why should I have to when it is 
already mounted? I would expect it to behave like all the other mount 
points and be listed as a mount selection.
As a side issue, XBMC/KODI for Android also show usb ports in its 
selection list as they are mount points under /mnt, will XBMC for Fedora 
not show any usb ports until something is mounted on them, and as Fedora 
mounts usb devices under /run/media, will XBMC detect those or only 
detect them if mounted under /mnt?
