    okay, just admit it...anyway...

    - jailbreak it
    - install apache
    - ssh in and type:
    - "mv /Library/WebServer/Documents /private/var/Documents"
    - "ln -s /private/var/Documents /Library/WebServer/Documents"
    - the previous step moves your web server root off the 300mb part of the flash that's used for the OS and onto the 8/16gb part.
    - sftp your movie into /Library/WebServer/Documents
    - make an .html page, for this example "porn.html"
    - add this to it:
    <object codebase="http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab#version=6,0,2,0" classid="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B">
    <param value="for the birds.mp4" name="src"/>
    </object>
    - replace "for the birds.mp4" with the name of your movie
    - visit http://127.0.0.1/porn.html
    - click the quicktime icon
    - enjoy
    - clear safari history

    you can make your html page a file browser, or whatever.

    You could save the trouble..and pad the movie with scenes from another movie and just use iTunes. Like have it sandwiched between like 10 minutes of Ratatouille or something. And name it Ratatouille. :p

    until my nephew wants to watch Ratatouille and I can't give him a good reason as to why he's not allowed to :) Or better yet I happen to leave my iPod lying around and he decides to watch it.

    Good point. Name it something else much more boring and probably less appealing to your nephew? Like..."A Lecture on the Big Bang theory"..har har :D

    that ish is hilarious. a lot of work to hide the pr0n. just rename the video to something else and then change the album artwork.then rub one out in the bathroom. they need a 3rd party lotion dispenser attachment on the iphone

    So, there might be good market for covers for the touch after all!! :D

    When I mentioned that the touch could play video on a watchable screen to my mate, filth was the first thing that sprang to his mind. Might try encoding something and calling it rat-a-too-ee :p

    Shame you can't choose the thumbnail for movies on the touch :eek:

    Hmmm... That might be an appropriate porn film title! ;)

    Reminds me of MacPlaymate. Er, at least that is what I heard! :eek: :)

    This could be used to view locally stored PDF's and other files, right? Alternatively, you could hide a lot of porn pic galleries as well... ;)

    If so, would you have to create the html file referencing it? Or could you just go to http://127.0.0.1 and see a listing of all files in the directory? (assuming you didn't create an index.html)

    I think there is some configurable setting in Apache that determines whether you get a folder listing in the absence of an index page, not sure how to tweak that if necessary.

    I actually use it as apache *gasp* - have php/sql on it and show sites to clients.

    And ironically I haven't done (yet) what I suggested in this thread. I did write a file browser for VLC, however (to use the itouch as a remote) that I might port for this general purpose...unless someone can figure out how to play media through finder, which I can't as of yet.

    I don't know, I would steal the layout of a iPhone video-based website, I would store those videos on a secret website and I would stream whatever I need when I need it...

    Do I have to install BSD subsystem or anything like that?

    EDIT- Installed BSD Subsystem, all is well-

    This is a great way to store local documents (of all types ;)) for viewing. If you don't have an index.html page, the browser will show a directory listing of the folder, including subfolders. So you can organize various documents, etc.

    It's amazing how powerful and hobbled (for arguably good reasons) the Touch/iPhone is. We don't have the most rudimentary file level access, yet you can run an Apache server on the unit to get around this. ;)

    Ok, I admit, I tried it, but my page displays a grayed out play button with a line through it.

    the part that says:

    <param value="for the birds.mp4" name="src"/>

    did you replace "for the birds.mp4" with the file name, EXACTLY as it is? it's case sensitive.

    That did it, there was a typo. How do you get it to play video in landscape?

    Nevermind, just rotating the ipod did the trick.
