Sharing network. SMB or copy to SD card?

My previous setup used to be Kodi on Raspberry Pi + network share through SMB.

Which kinda worked, but I had to increase buffer load to RAM, otherwise it would just load the content every several minutes.

Now I am building brand new setup with hope to buy soon new Vero and wanted to revisit sharing of the files.

Would it be better to simply MicroSDXC with 256GB and put it in Vero. After that simply move the content over network to that MicroSDXC on Vero? So, basically the content will work locally, instead of using SMB.

Should this be more stable and quicker compared to relying on SMB?

SMB will work fine on the Vero, so if you prefer that setting, there should be no need to use a micro SD card.
