Why do you need to NOT use storage groups? For each FE the local mount points become the entries in that machine's Videos storage group, the database stores relative paths which work across all machines and everybody is happy. That's how I see it anyway.

A few years back (like maybe 5) there were discussions about streaming vs local mounting and I think people found local mounts won out over streaming decisively. Things may have changed or my memory might be failing me but I've always looked at myth streaming as the second class solution.
