MPlayer Configuration

Why is it when I try to configure Mplayer, I get permission denied

[kuwaitikid@Laptop ~]$ ~/.mplayer/config
bash: /home/kuwaitikid/.mplayer/config: Permission denied

They same thing happens if I try to do this as "Root"

config is a text file. You're trying to execute it. Nada.

Open it up in a text editor.
