      You can use WordPress and PowerPress for video podcasting. I've done it. It
      works just as well for video as it does for audio. A cool feature that was
      recently added to PowerPress is the ability to include embed codes from
      sharing sites such as YouTube so that on your own site, visitors can play
      the embedded video via YouTube (or whatever video site you use) or they can
      download the podcast file (either as a direct download or via RSS
      subscription). You can see an example of what I mean here:


      The advantage to this over embedding your own files though PowerPress's
      default Flash player is that, embeds from sharing sites tend to load faster.
      (This isn't a PowerPress issue, it's a bandwidth issue.)

      The m4v format is required for videos to play on an iPhone, so you may want
      to make that the target format for your video files. As far as I know, m4v
      will play on most devices. (I could be wrong about that.)  I wouldn't bother
      distributing WMV files in addition to another video format unless you just
      want to make extra work for yourself. If you do decide to do that, consider
      making a secondary feed specifically for those files.

      I can't make any specific recommendations when it comes to hardware but
      maybe someone else can.
