If you want to be able to scrape from any client, you need all the clients to be using the same paths. As path substitution doesn't appear to work when scraping, I think you're only options are these:
  1. Configure the sources using the /var/media mount points
  2. Configure the sources using NFS paths (nfs:// etc.)

Option 1 would allow you to configure additional NFS performance optimisations, and would even allow you to swap NFS for SMB/CIFS or some other protocol if you so wish, your library will continue working uninterrupted.

Option 2 is often the easiest solution, but can be a little less reliable (particularly if you're testing nightlies).

Of course both options will require you to re-scrape your library from scratch, but at least once you've done that you can dispense with any further path substitution hacks.
