As I found out, any path starting with two double slashes is treated as an UNC (network) path:

    vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv root
               directory ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

So "/Library/Video" and "/" are directories mounted on your machine while "//Library/Video" is a computer named "Library" with a share named "Video".

However, an error message in Python 3.8 (as a file path suggests) is misleading. In 3.11 it was changed to "'\\Library\Video\' is not in the subpath of '\' OR one path is relative and the other is absolute."
