jquery-swapable (MIT License) by Vadim Kiryukhin is a little bit like Sortable but instead swaps items. Usage is similar to Sortable, except it also requires a
cursorAt parameter:

  items: '.itemClass',
  cursorAt: { top: -10 }

It will work with
lists, grids, and horizontal

The project is hosted on Google Code:

jQuery Templates

I've mentioned Scott Guthrie's Microsoft-supported jQuery plugins
before, but now there's news jQuery
will be
included with jQuery 1.5.

jquery.sg.video (MPL) by Filippo Pacini is based on Video for
, an idea put forward by
Kroc Camen. The plugin uses feature detection from
Modernizr, and can provide information on format support through \$.support.video. For example, the
browser I'm using right now returns this:

{"ogg": "", "h264": "probably", "webm": ""}

If your videos have the same file name with different extensions for
each format, you can set up a video like this:

 $('#video-container').video('video_file_name', options);

This is a minimal yet useful plugin -- most video plugins attempt to
provide a complete solution, with fancy player graphics and other
features. This one keeps things simple instead.
