Yup, I just now made this work. I can now play videos in /mnt/videos
locally from machine M as if it were a local filesystem.

Now what remains to be done is to get the right configuration for samba.
At present, I am using sudo with username and password to mount the
samba folder:
$> sudo mount -t cifs -o username=hs //gurh/Music /mnt/videos

Now I am starting to search for the right or the recommended samba
configuration for this scenario.

Thanks and regards.
