Via my man Duncan - iTunes 4.9 not only supports podcasts (extremely cool) but videoblogs:

Hey, that's not an MP3... it's an Amanda Congdon from Rocketboom!

You have to search the podcast directory to find them - I'm waiting for mine to show up. And, it's not nearly as cool or functional as FireANT. But it could change everything and introduce videoblogs to the masses. How long before our audience grows exponentially? People will be turning their TVs off in droves. Films will have a new distribution outlet. We'll go through more growing pains. It's an exciting time for personal media.

iTunes certainly trumps Google Video as the exciting media development of the day. Even so, it may be inferior to Odeo when that gets released. Power users will likely use FireANT and Odeo, while iTunes introduces a whole new audience to podcasting and videoblogging.

Freevlog.org: Start a vlog and host it for free. You have a voice - why not use it? Besides... it's super fun.

you probably knew this but you can manually add the RSS feed by going into the Advanced dropdown menu and choosing "add podcast" I added mine that way and it worked great.

I also submitted my feed to Apple. It was hard to pick a category though.

yeah, i didn't know what category to use.
i believe i'm... entertainment.

There's a movement afoot to get Apple to add a "videoblog" or "video" category. Right now you have to search on those terms to find videoblogs. I don't think they anticipated how excited we'd be about videoblogs in iTunes.
