Hi Matt,

The way I handle this is I mount the NFS share somewhere like /mnt/Share and then I set the path for Videos to
/mnt/videos which has symlinks to the video directories (ie: /mnt/Share/family is symlinked to /mnt/videos/family).  I don't have the videos level directory this way (added bonus, I can move folders around without having to rebuild the database -- just symlink it to the new location)
