    I know the iPhone 3GS can record and playback 720p video.
    But how can I enable 720p playback on my 3GS?
    It's jailbroken with 4.1 iOS.

    I wanted to be able put 720p m4v/mov files on my 3gs through iTunes.

    The screen's resolution makes true 720p playback literally impossible. Zune HD can "play" 720p as well, but......

    Why not convert it to a resolution that makes sense and uses less memory?

    Ive already done the video recording hack. I wasn't sure if it enabled 720p playback too but I guess it does.

    Will this let me put my 720p m4v files on my phone thru iTunes?

    The reason I don't want to make an iPhone version of my movies is bc I just want a 720p version of my movies for appletv and iPhone. Just one version of my movies, not 2. I have plenty of room on my 32gb 3GS.

    Plus with tvout2 I can play the 720p movies on a tv with component cables.
