Yes, you have to mount the directories. Mythmusic and mythvideo don't
stream using the myth protocol.

Subject: [mythtv-users] Frontend only - no videos?
I've almost got a remote frontend only machine working.
I can watch live tv and watch recorded programs. I am unable
to watch videos, can't listen to music nor can I see pictures.
The documentation is somewhat sparse on how to accomplish
this. I have a frontend running on the same machine as the
backend, so that's no problem - it works. Do I need to nfsmount
the video, music and picture directory on the frontend? I thought
the myth protocol would take care of that. I have tried putting
in the same path to those directories in the remote frontend
as is in the "local" frontend and still can't see them. I can
nfsmount the directories and get access to them that way,
but is that the right way to do this?
