You don't want to do ssh for video, ssh encrypts every packet. That is why
it is slow. Most people don't have a fast enough PC to encrypt video.

I think you should be fine as long as you are within your local network not
going to the Internet.. Your wired LAN is 10 mega bits per sec and your
wireless is 54 mega bits per second. Your video player is way below that.
There is a good NFS how to on the Ubuntu. I made my NFS server to have
static IP address (192.168.1.200) so I don't have to worry about DNS.
If you decide to go this route I can help you out.
