A while back I found a good post (via FlashInsider) that detailed how to create a video sharing site, but when I went to look at it recently, it was replaced by a placeholder page written in German. Thanks to Google cache, here is a mirror of it, including comments. I’m not planning on hosting a YouTube site, but the FLV/FlowPlayer stuff is interesting.
UPDATE: It’s back now, but I’m leaving this here anyway.

I’ve found a few command lines to use ffmpeg to convert to iPod format, and they almost all use the “trell” flag. I kept getting errors, and then I found that it is no longer a valid flag, so it needs to be removed from the command line.
And what is “trell”? Not sure – something to do with quantization:
trell trellis quantization
this will find the optimal encoding for each 8×8 block
trellis quantization is quite simple a optimal quantization in the PSNR vs bitrate sense (assuming that there would be no rounding errors introduced by the IDCT, which is obviously not the case) it simply finds a block for the minimum of error + lambda*bits
lambda is a qp dependant constant
bits is the amount of bits needed to encode the block
error is simple the sum of squared errors of the quantization
