Vidnik vs Seesmic

I like the look of Vidnik:

It’s a simple program for using the built-in camera on your Mac to create movies and upload them to YouTube.

I’ve played around with Seesmic a bit as a video blogging tool but I find it’s not very podcast-friendly. Seesmic wants you to use their site to store and distribute your videos, which isn’t very useful for a podcaster who wants to create an rss feed to publish. Vidnik automatically uploads your video to YouTube and it’s easy enough to embed that into a blog post and create your own rss feed for it.

I don’t know any way to have this download automatically to an iPod though – anyone know of a way to create a feed which will automatically pull YouTube down videos onto a portable player?

UPDATE: Just noticed that my sound is out of synch on that video above. Bad YouTube!
