I'm feeling the pull of a convergence... Check this out. Additional support for QuickTime content in Oracle's interMedia databases will allow you to search and retrieve streaming media content, using - and get this kids... - Sherlock 2. Color me enabled.

how on earth can you stick streaming content in a database? Would someone have to generate keywords, or enter some closed-captioning-style text into the db to describe the movie?

Virage is a company that has a technology which indexes video footage called Videologger. based on timecode, movement, texture, color and shapes. Perhaps this could be used to "keyword" or at least distinguishes various bits within a chunk of dynamic media. It does make you wonder though. Apparently they have something that "listens" to audio tracks and can make them searchable too.
