was wondering if i wanted to allow users to upload videos and other users to search/play them what software should i be looking at? uploading/searching would be done through php, as for the playing of the files i wanna learn about it not just some software that dumps a load of unneeded code on my site. any ideas?

I would stick with PHP/MySQL for all the DB stuff.
Flash video is one way you can go. Convert the video to flv after upload, and use a flash player to play on website.
