This video shows an eye with a hypopyon. This is when pus layers out in the front portion of the AC and can be seen as white in the bottom portion of this movie.
Hypopions can be sterile or infectious. This particular case was secondary to bacterial endophthalmitis from an exposed tube-shunt (a tube placed in eyes with advanced glaucoma). You can see the end of the tube in the video as well. Intraocular inflammation like this can also be seen in certain types of uveitis.
