Verified video

I heard there was a way of encrypting videos with blockchain/crypto between frames so that there is a way of checking if a video has been cut/doctored. Devices would need to insert the encryption as a video is recorded so footage can always be traced back to a verified source.

How practical that is currently I don't know, but seems like a potential solution to use alongside machine learning.
