Improper Hashcat Setup - John Turner - 07-05-2016

I've been trying to crack a FreeBSD MD5 hash, but the speed is at 0H/s. I did some research and someone in a different thread suggested that it was because my input mode is pipe: "Input.mode....: Pipe". I've looked around for material on this, but I guess I'm looking in all the wrong places because I haven't found anything. I'm assuming that because nothing obvious turns up on Google or on the wiki, I'm making some blatantly obvious noob error. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
