Video Playback Error on Vizio Simulator


On a fresh install of the 1.0.0 devkit, (Ubuntu 8.10 running in VirtualBox)I can run video from the 'Video Sample' widget just fine for all simulators except for the Visio simulator. It comes up with a dialog box that just says "Video Playback Error, We encountered an error attempting to playback the requested video". Logs do not seem to show anything useful. LG Simulator (what I've been testing with until now) works just fine.

Is this a known issue, or something likely wrong with my environment?

The error log shows this:

WE 00:00:26:757: [T:5605] !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WE 00:00:26:757: [T:5605] ERROR!ERROR!ERROR!ERROR!ERROR!
WE 00:00:26:761: [T:5605] !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WE 00:00:26:761: [T:5605] VideoSample [com.yahoo.widgets.tv.videosample]
WE 00:00:26:761: [T:5605] You must provide a viewId in the config which attaches this player instance to that view (video.js: Line 71)
WE 00:00:26:765: [T:5605] !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Which suggests that the default sample doesn't follow the note posted elsewhere in this forum about setting this viewid.
