    I have heard they can rank if you change video file name and file size (and description)

    It was a trustful source, but I have not verified

    I would have thought it will rank if you boost it enough.

    Why not make it unique? Use a uniquifying app.

    I have tried to upload exactly the same video twice but the detected it and warn me.
    I had to delete one of the videos.
    I am not sure what you mean when you say duplicated.

    This.

    It isn't hard to make a video unique and it will probably be easier to rank it this way.
