AFP or SMB for Media Player (aka Infuse)?

My Synology DiskStation does both AFP and SMB, so I was wondering - which should I pick for streaming media to the Media Player (which is know called Infuse)? Which protocol is faster?

Aside from the Apple TV everything I have is SMB based; ATV is the only thing using AFP at the moment.

It seems even Apple is moving away from AFP w/ the newest Mavericks OSX version. Does SMB perform better?


Both should perform equally well, though I tend to prefer AFP myself.
