The StreetView section now has an RSS feed!

http://feeds.feedburner.com/GoogleEarthHacksStreetview

The only downside is that you can't see the images in the feed, but I'm having it push all of the details (name, description, submitter, category, location, etc) to make it as useful as possible.

Duh, I was wrong. I was thinking that I couldn't push files to the RSS feed using the API, which is correct. However, I can always push the embed code through the RSS feed.

I don't actually have the embed code for any of the files, but it was easy enough to regenerate using the info collected with each submission. :)

Hmmm...I follwoed your link and the website said "Illegal Operation Suggest You Close Firefox"..I hit cancel and it kept coming up. Then Firefox crashed. Any idea why?

It did the same thing for me. I think it's because I had too many items being pushed at one, and having to load the Flash/iframe for each one was just too much to handle.

I've reduced the number from 100 (what GEH uses) to 20, and that seems to have helped. Sorry about that.
