I've never used Panda, but I've built an app to upload and encode
videos.

I used rails 2.3.x, the Paperclip gem, and ffmpeg, and it's all very
straight-forward.

I have since upgraded to rails 3, upload straight to Amazon, and
encode with Zencoder (http://zencoder.com/)

You usually upload a video by saving an instance of the video on disk
(or on s3 for example), and saving a reference on the database so that
you can retrieve it later. It's easier to use existing gems for this,
like paperclip[1] or carrierwave[2].

Unfortunately, I don't think carrierwave is available for Rails 2.3.x,
but feel free to check it out anyway. Their documentation should also
answer your questions.
