It could be the Box Maker gadget - http://gadgets.vectric.com/V9/box_creator.html

If not could you post a link to the video as there are a few people who have gadgets that aren't published on the main site.

According to the comments on the video it was developed by the guy who posted the video but the files are no longer available from the website he had them on as it's been taken down. He says you would need to contact him directly to get the files.

Is your machine capable of holding boards vertically rather than horizontally though? With that type of gadget (there are a few others about) you need to be able to hold the boards vertically at the end of the machine rather than laying flat on the table.

My Shapeoko will extend past the front rail enough that with a jig to hold the wood it could cut the finger joints.
It should be easy to do the design for the finger joints and set the tool paths and then just jog the machine to the front and set the xyz. and run it.
The challenge would be to design the program so to be able to resize the project and number of pins
