Actually, MythVideo files stored in a Storage Group *do* only get a
path relative to the SG.  Theoretically, though I don't use the
windows frontend, SG streaming to MythVideo on windows would be the
*only* way it could work.  if you have absolute paths, then your
videos aren't in a storage group.

If you want it to work w/ Windows local path names, sounds like a
Feature Request.  MythVideo is probably, like many of the other
plugins on windows, only partially functional.
