Video indexing is most definitely a different process - so are other vertical areas. Video is not nearly so quick to index, in my experience, as text content.

It's still not indexed. I'm wondering if
1) The Schema.org mark-up is a) correct and b) actually used by Google, as the documentation is horrible and incomplete, and
2) Google actually recognize <video> tags, as all their documentation seems to be outdated and constantly refers to SWFs and FLVs.
What is the experience out there with getting videos indexed?

I'm also interested, anyone?

My experience is that once a YouTube version is ranking, then a locally hosted version of the same video is a kind of duplicate content and will have lots of trouble.
If you don't want to just embed the YouTube version on your own domain's page, then I would not upload to YouTube until your local version is indexed. But you're better off most of the time, to make sure the YouTube vdieo's page or channel helps people find your website - essentially use Google's YouTube property as a part of your extended web marketing.

I would agree with this as well, I have never been able to beat a youtube video that I uploaded first with the same video locally hosted on my site. Tedster recommendation on this is the way I would handle it as well.

Ya ok but other than meta data and the length, Google can't be too sure about whether it's duplicate content eh.
Does anyone have experience with MP4 files, the <video> tag, and Schema.org?

There's a lot more technology at YouTube than you may realize - including an automated system to detect copyright violation.
No, they may not be 100% certain that the video is a dupe in every case... but if the file contains exactly the same video and audio, I'm pretty sure they can.
