Based on my experience there, which is limited, as I am just the level one tech, I would say that it is going to be a nightmare for you to pull video across a network, even if it is an LDAP network with the apps running locally on the clients, let alone have the apps running on the server. The server will take a huge hit. Even with an LDAP setup, which sees only files (and not apps) running across the network, you are looking at big lag times and poor performance for those machines.

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!
