PAD.MA is an online archive of densely text-annotated video material, primarily footage and not finished films. The entire collection is searchable and viewable online, and is free to download for non- commercial use.”

The video timeline can be annotated with a lot of metadata.

Tech stats:
Built with TurboGears, a lot of javascript, some jquery, mysql and search by solr. Streamer, mod_annodex and several other Ogg related tools are used for the video backend. ideo playback requires VLC plugin or OggPlay plugin at the moment until browsers support the <video> tag.

The code is GPL and can be found at https://wiki.pad.ma and https://wiki.pad.ma/wiki/Source.
