No, you'll have to wrap your external player in a trivial shell script which strips off the myth junk to get the relative path and prepends something to place that path in your filesystem.
I suspect people's storage groups have paths like /disk1/videos and /disk2/videos so prepending /disk*/videos to the output of echo URL | cut -f4- -d/ which is basically a one-liner.

That would be unfortunate as the internal player does badly in some situations.
