Can you play videos that have been iBluetooth'd to you?

    Today, I was bluetooth'd a video from my friend via iBluetooth.
    As I was at school, I wanted to show some other friends that hadn't seen it yet, but I was unable to show it to them.

    I was thinking, is it actually possible to view videos that have been sent from another phone?

    I tried saving in var/mobile/media/videos (where cycorder saves videos) but it didn't display the video, most likely because it was .3gp not the default .mov that cycorder uses.

    The only way I could think of it to save it in var/mobile/media/videos and then SSH from iPhone to computer, then sync through iTunes. If there is an easier way please help me!!

    Thanks

    Wouldn't it be easier if they sent it through MMS or email?

    When a .3gp video is sent via MMS, the iphone will play it (at least 3GS will). Not sure if the phone will play it outside of the Mobile Messaging app.

    Thanks for all the ideas but iFile from Cydia can both search through directories as well as play movies etc :)
