It will use the most-direct path for streaming the file.  Each backend 
and frontend will know which file systems are local and which are 
remote, and the frontend will play directly from local drives, use 
mythproto streaming from a backend with local drives (even if that 
backend is different from the recording backend), and failing that, use 
NFS from the frontend, or NFS from the backend, if necessary.
