Strictly speaking LDAP is really just for authentication, groups,  
etc, it doesn't take up much network traffic. I'd suspect the issue  
you are having is storing the video files on a network share (like  
your /home folder mounted over NFS). Then all the I/O is going to  
have to travel over the network. You could still have LDAP and /home  
mounted over NFS, just don't put your AV files on there when you are  
working with them. That stuff needs it's own storage!
