Rsync's delta-transfer algorithm already checks for each destination block at
every byte offset in the source file (not just multiples of the block size), so
the algorithm can match data across an insertion or deletion of an arbitrary
number of bytes with a loss of about one additional block.  I don't think there
is any need for special processing of .mov or .mp4 files.
