Movable Type users get Seesmic plug-in

Get video comments on your MT blog with this new plug-in.

Movable Type users looking to get simple video comments on their blogs have access to a new plug-in from the folks at Seesmic. Once installed, commenters can add text and/or video underneath someone's blog post, similar to what's been available for WordPress users since late April. The plug-in joins similar ones for Disqus, DotClear, and Cocomment. One for Drupal is also right around the corner.

Personally I've never been a big fan of video comments on blog posts solely for attention's sake. I just can't tell if a comment is worth viewing from the thumbnail, whereas I can eyeball text far faster. That hasn't stopped some of our competitors like Mashable and TechCrunch from adding video commenting to their sites though.

What do you think?
