The first page shown is the playlist. With the "square with lines" button you go to the catalog page (to select songs) the first page you see is the catalog that relies in a database (requires local drives attached, and a .wdtv folder in the root). At the upper-right corner there is a "files" button, to change to the catalog that relies on folder-browsing. To go back to the database-catalog, you can click the button at that corner that now reads "database".
I do not see a reason for these buttons not showing (even if the database-catalog functionality won't work for you because your files are not local).
If you provide more detail, we could try to figure something else with respect to that problem.
(Depending on your browser you may not see a button, but only the words "files" or "databases". Clicking them also works.)
(Please, test the application with a local drive to see functionallity, and from that, you will be able to compare)

I do not have experience with mounted shares. Certainly the current app will not work for remote files in that setup.
Your comment makes me think that I might need to include a configuration box to define the root for browsing files. I will consider this for future versions. In the meantime, you may need to tweak the file itself ("webplayer.pl") within the app.bin. (Unless your shares get mounted in /tmp/media/usb/...)
About the database... well, I would need a sample file to see how the contents are organized and how the app could be adapted to work also with shares. I can not prepare a specific setup to test this, but we will see.
