add option to install/enable samba so video storage directory can be shared easily with windows machines

add checkbox to configuration in user interface(s) which allows the install/enable/configuration of samba so that video can be easily shared with windows machines. also the configuration should allow one to choose which directories/subdirectories to share and to name the samba mount point (configuration file entries in /etc/samba/smb.conf)


by "samba mount point" i meant the "samba share point" (visible to windows)

It is very common that folks would like access without the bluecherry client. You should make that as easy as possible. And 90+% of all desktops are Windows... So this is a natural.

Even just putting in a basic Samba share for the directories (trivial) would be a big benefit to end customers. I suggest you start simple / basic (covering the immediate need) and then add more value later. Rather than ignore this all together... which is a real need.
