Within the BrightCove UI a user can replace an existing video to a newer edition so that it does not disturb the video's unique ID or metadata configuration (similar to what can be done to an ADAM record).
We need the Video Studio BrightCove Channel functionality to include this feature, so that if an ADAM video record is revised with a new version, we can republish to BrightCove to perform that "replace" function within BrightCove.

Here is their reference page which explains this in a great deal of depth:
