Vidrate is a tool for allowing multiple people to vote which video files of a database should be kept. This tool can help you to quickly free some space on your file server without specifically asking all the server's users which movies should be kept. The interface also allows you to mark videos as seen and to assign comments. Included is a cron job that periodically scans the video directory for new or deleted videos and also deletes videos that have the required number of votes.
