Not sure if it currently exists but if it doesn't it just a matter of time before someone applies file storage to blockchain technology.... Research ICOs that might be already getting into such a space ... sounds like a very promising one to get in indeed... Hope this helps

Blockchain is simply a distributed decentralized ledger where each block represents one transaction - debit or credit. A block stores only text data about the transaction and some crypto elements.

are you looking, BitTorrent kind of P2P network
or IPFS
The IPFS is designed to provide a decentralized alternative to the current http protocol
and there is filecoin blockchain as well, just to store your files and video in distributed network, https://filecoin.io/
