A recent Slashdot story on RSS prompted me to comment on Drupal's RSS capabilities; This site has RSS because Drupal makes it trivial. But what most people don't know, because Google apparently doesn't want you to know, is that Youtube has RSS feeds. Using them permits you to build your own chronological subscriptions list without having to use Youtube's lousy interface. But how do you actually find them?

A comment in that Slashdot discussion has the answer:

[...]use either:

"https://www.youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?channel_id=[your channel ID here, alphanumeric string]"
or
"https://www.youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?user=[username here, but the username is not always the display name. Check page source.]"

and copy that address to your RSS reader.

Alternately, you can use Google's interface, which sometimes works.
