The symlink will work.  I've been using one for my main video
directory for a very very long time.  There was a small bug in some of
the code that resolves pathnames that I submitted a patch for several
months ago.  This has been checked in to SVN, but I don't believe it
was backported to any of the 20.fixes versions (might have to check on

Unless you have a very specific reason for doing this though, you're
probably better off following some of the other suggestions made and
using the new storage groups features or just mounting the new drive
directly at /storage/videos.
