Play your media in a Flash player
Get the code for the player to embed in any site (myspace, blog, etc)
Generates thumbnails for videos
Multi-user support with user login and user management
Export your playlist in XSPF/Spiff format

Tech specs:

Ruby on Rails application designed with RESTful methodology
Supports all major video and image formats, and mp3 for music
