Where is data stored?

By default, the data is stored in an embedded, persistent database called H2. This database persists the data into a file adjacent to the .jar file that was executed.

How do I hook in my existing file system, so that I don’t need to re-upload each Video file?

You can now use the “Local Video Files” Directory in the settings page! Just point it to the root directory of your media collection and you will have a nifty file-browser showing a manage-files popup for each episode/movie
