  Video-App is a YouTube-like site written in rails.  It converts video to flash(ffmpeg) and plays videos using FlowPlayer(an open-source flash video player).  Has Pagination(will_paginate), Tagging/Tag Cloud(acts_as_taggable_on_steroids), User Authentication(authlogic), Video Replies, and Video Thumbnails.
