Personally, my masterbackend hosts all the storage. This way, even if
the slave backend isn't running you can still watch the program.
There's a setting called "Masterbackend Override" that will have the
master backend stream the file if the slave backend isn't available.

Definately nfs - make sure you use version 3. The HOWTO has a section
on this. People have run into issues with SMB and files that exceed 2 GB.
