I've had to resort to 'download the test copy, compare checksums, confirm' anyway - being able to skip the test download would streamline it pretty well.
It's fairly safe to assume that Windows users will be using one of the NT platforms, so HashCheck would be fine for the majority. .sfv or .md5 files could be made available so that all the user would need to do to is download that .sfv/.md5 file, make sure it's in the same directory as their video, and double-click on the .sfv/.md5 - the HashCheck dialog box will appear and show them whether it's correct. Since it also works from the file's Properties dialog and integrates into Windows Explorer's right-click menu, it could also be used to gather the info before uploading or to put in the filename for the autocheck idea.
Alternatively, there is this application:
It's cross-platform, but doesn't do CRC32.
