I have movies, music and photos on a NAS that I have permanently mounted through /etc/fstab. I noticed when I go into the launcher and click on any of the music, photo and video lens, the results do not include NAS results (my guess is because the lenses are looking in /Music, /Pictures and /Videos instead of mounted shares).

Is it possible to modify the lenses to look in the share folder as well to show the results?

Do you mount your NAS on startup? – Brandon Bertelsen Apr 27 '13 at 2:29
Yes I do, they actually mount before the wi-fi is enabled, causing errors before the welcome screen, but nonetheless are mounted afterwards. – user152695 Sep 16 '13 at 20:49
