Since the original preview generator code checked for the file
locally, when I made the Storage Groups modifications, I made
it force ProgramInfo::GetPlaybackURL() to check locally as well
instead of honoring the AlwaysStreamFiles setting.  Maybe we should
honor that setting in the preview generator as well.  This isn't
directly tied to this issue, but it may affect some people who
are seeing the issue.

RE: where to generate the preview at...

I can see there may be benefits to generating it locally, but
I've always preferred that that kind of thing be done on the
backend that recorded the file.  We could still honor the
MasterBackendOverride setting and have the master generate the
preview if that setting is on.
