tl;dr: Encode IPFS file information in the file ID part of MXC URIs so that media repos supporting IPFS could fetch it from there and other media repos would automatically fall back to requesting it normally.

Don't know if synapse currently stores files from different upload jobs only once if they have the same content. If it does not then this would help in reducing the amount of needed storage space.

An early implementation of this is at 1f0d001 with more instructions in the help room at https://matrix.to/#/!VpacCXZFLTrQdwjtav:t2l.io/$15832122601775VokKO:t2l.io?via=t2l.io&via=matrix.org&via=t2bot.io

Please give it a go, and if it works in any sense then some work towards supporting IPFS datastores and more config options (so you're not chained to localhost) can be done. For now though, hopefully this is enough to at least try and understand how all this could work.

I saw this was also tagged in the most recent release (https://github.com/turt2live/matrix-media-repo/releases/tag/v1.1.0)! Exciting stuff. =]
