I'm seeing so many videos that have that soft washed out milky look and I'm falling in love with it.
I already searched "milky/washed look" and nothing is coming up so I need some help.
How do people get this kind of look?
example -> http://vimeo.com/37787569
what do you call that look?
when I color correct the footage how is it done?

I think of that look as the "low contrast, desaturated look". .
If you like that look then you might love "lens whacking":

Some folks may not be old enough to remember this look. I do, my first few films were naturally like this. It's old 8mm consumer film. Yes, actual film. I had a Brownie wind up (yes, I said wind up) movie camera that I started with back in the very early 70's. So look for 8mm film look.
Low contrast, yellowish washes, saturation is tricky with it. Should be a few places that have plugins that will do this. FCP.co has a thread full of free FCP X effects folks are making in Motion, which are great quality, and I think one of them there does this.
Ah, those were the days, 8mm film, I'm so glad I don't work with "film" any more...
