I see two things wrong: first, SELinux should never be disabled without very good reasons, and the fact that this is still happening is proof that it's not involved. Unless you have other issues that you think it's causing, please enable it for your own security. Second, /mnt/WDCB500 has ownership of root root and nobody not in the root group has access to it. That means that regular users can't access anything in that directory, including the videos directory, regardless of what its permissions are. My advice is to add root to the media group and then use sudo chown root media /mnt/WDCB500 to allow anybody in the media group access to it.
