How does YouTube work?

I'm trying to locate some information on the kind of backend needed to power a site like YouTube. Not in terms of scale or size, more in terms of the kind of software. How are the clips re-encoded and how are they streamed? Would you need Flash Media Server? What, after bandwidth, would be the biggest cost?
