To make better use of YouTube

My use of YouTube has been pretty spineless: I sometimes check Viral Video Chart (mostly for outrage or Zeitgeist, which seems the same thing all too often... ), I use YouTube's keyword search for obscure people and instruments and musical genres, and I grab the occasional clip and save it to the Hoard (where it basically sits around, untagged and unlinked), and sometimes I Embed a video in a page or a blog posting. I've scarcely used the 'Favorite' button, and until today I confess that I wasn't inspired to even think about social uses... but (via The Programmable Web) I stumbled upon Walter Rafelsberger's Metaportal der Medienpolemik, which mashes Dapper and YouTube to construct an RSS feed from one's YouTube Favorites. Here's mine, for anybody who might be interested... and I vow to use the Favorite button more systematically.
