It will even be automatically mounted if needed when the folder is browsed in Silver Screen. To make the alias, mount the server or other disk in the Finder, locate the folder containing the movies and Command-Option-drag the folder's icon into your Movies directory.

Anybody tried this version with Snow Leopard?

No, but I believe that it is specifically intended for Mountain Lion. Their home page gives the VERY strong impression that MP 2.5.4 I think is the one you want for 10.6.
