Kaffeine and playing files from off the local network

This is beginning to look like a bug that maybe should spread. I have been 
playing around with amarok which seemed to work with files off the nas. If I 
launch click an mp3 on the nas all is ok. It plays but if I try to generate a 
play list with it it fails to play them again. If I navigate to the nas via 
amarok and select an mp3 it won't accept it. So it looks like for some reason 
kde is passing it a file when an mp3 is launched. I don't think they are being 
downloaded before playing otherwise the playlist should still work.

I wonder if this all relates to this "bug" https://bugs.kde.org/253547. Biggest 
problem with that is that the X-KDE-Protocols shown there are correct in my VLC 
.desktop file. Amarok only has http added.

It doesn't work either way with VLC despite it having a files input which 
includes an increased buffer time for use over the network. I'm not sure if it's 
"can only open local files" when one is selected off the nas error message is 
down to kde or what.
