True.  But this is the way that it is currently done, so (currently) putting 
the storage on a network share would have the disadvantages I mentioned.  And 
having the client do the decoding would up the ante in terms of the 
hardware/disk space required by the client.  I'd rather have the ability to 
use a thin client than a fat one, say something like movix. (movix.sf.net).
