Oh, and I forgot -- reading the comments in the Russel Beattie post.... 3GPP format! Are any of us thinking about producing content in that format? I know Quicktime Pro can export in 3GP, not sure about iMovie... I guess the only advantage of using it would be if you expected people to play it on their iPod screen (which doesn't *yet* support it) or on their cellphone (has anyone actually watched video on their cell phone yet in this group?). Which means, currently you would have to download the file to your computer and transfer to your mobile device -- probably using Bluetooth or a wired connection. Or -- cell phones will soon include aggregators to download the content themselves -- either while "docked" and connected to the Net, or on the go... Do you think people would subscribe to videoblogs from their mobile device in the near near future?
