Fergie Remixed is an online "virtual" video remixing application that lets users create their own music videos remixes from Fergie and Black Eyed Pea videos. The Fergie aspect makes it a very cool site but what really makes it interesting from a business and technology standpoint is how it is delivered.
The site uses patented metadata technology to "virtually edit" and compile the user-generated remixes — no new video files are created and the source videos remain untouched. No new video files being created means that the publisher can keep full control of all that is created using the site no matter where the remix is embedded, emailed, etc. Also makes for a lot less storage cost as well!
I thought that at least the web developers could check it out and leave comments on the site developement — heavy AJAX and PHP with only a minimal use of Flash to stream the video...flame away!" Link to Original Source top

When the Gotuit site was released in late July, one of the key questions from Slashdot users was when the site would be available for Linux. The site is an online video destination for music videos, news, weather and sports that uses the Flash media player to deliver video."
