To be fair, this was about FETCHING automatically, not SUBMITTING

But I don't see any way to do that. We need to match the exact same file,
otherwise the time lines could be too far off. And then, hashing the whole
file would be too slow for large videos. So in practice, I think embedded
or attached metadata storage is the only practical solution.
