Uploading videos with unknown dates/setlists...

I recently remembered that my dad has an entire cabinet full of 1st gen beta tapes of concerts aired in the 80s. These have all been kept in their house, not in a garage or attic, and are in air-tight cases. He hasn't even really played them since they were recorded. My thought is that they should all be in relatively good shape. I have never uploaded anything on here, so I have a few questions.

1) These tapes are unlabeled other than artist, any maybe a year on some of them. Other than whatever information is made available during the broadcasts, I'll have no information as far as confirmed set lists, performance date, original air date, etc. Is it a problem if I upload them, only to find out they are already posted on here?

2) If I post a video, and later people in this community are able to better identify specific information about the videos, can I modify the info file without having to delete the original post and start over?

3) Any tips on getting beta tapes converted to digital format?
