I'm trying to stream music from a CIFS share hosted on a local FreeNAS server, other Windows based PCs will also be streaming music from this share.

This share is currently around 50GB and will only continue to grow.

I've mounted the share in Ubuntu and attempted to import the shared folder using both Rhythmbox and Banshee but only receive errors and the media players crash.

What media player should I use to accomplish this or what am I doing wrong with Rhythmbox and Banshee.
