like the title says, "how do you get the movie files shot with Cycorder, out of the iPhone?"
You have to SSH into your iPhone, here is a guide. Once you do that, navigate to /var/mobile/Media/Videos in your iPhone and the videos would be there. Good luck!
I'm on a mac...
I could Google SSH for iPhone mac users, but I was wondering if the technic to SSH changed with the 3.0 iPhone update.
Apparently SSH isn't working with 3.0 yet, but what do I know.
I am using DiskAid: http://www.digidna.net/diskaid/
Pretty easy to use. I wish you could send the videos on an email attachment, at least.
answer to my own question
I've tried it, it works and I found the explanation very simple.
The only thing is you are not too familiar with FTP servers, is that you have to choose SFTP, and not FTP when choosing the type of connection:
So you've been recording a feature film using Cycorder on your jailbroken iPhone. It's time to edit and you want to copy all of those .mov files from the iPhone to your home computer. The process is relatively simple if you have the right software.
First of all, make sure you've installed the SSH package on your iPhone. SSH is free and can be found on the Cydia installer. Connect to your Wi-Fi network and look for the name of your network under Settings -> Wi-Fi. Select the blue arrow for more information about your network and make a note of the IP address of your iPhone.
Using an SSH or SFTP client on your computer (like Fugu or WinSCP) create a new connection for file transfer to the IP address of your iPhone. The username is 'root' and the default password is 'alpine' to connect.
Navigate on the iPhone to the location of the Cycorder videos. Cycorder files are stored in the directory '/var/mobile/media/videos' and can be transferred using SFTP directly to your computer. The .mov video files will then be playable on your computer using Quicktime or another program such as VLC
It is working with 3.0! I SSH'd a cycorder video I recorded just yesterday
DiskAid beats SSH Hands down, its direct USB, no wi-fi network, and keeping the phone alive during a file transfer, since the USB connection does that for you.
SSH isn't working on 3.0 for me, either.
perhaps the login user name and password are different?
edit: nevermind, i had SSH turned off in sbsettings. haha
diskaid isnt working with 3.0 =/
Just tried it and it doesn't work either. SSH wins
My computer > ipod name > internal storage > DCIM > cycorder videos.
Not too hard.
Works on my first generation with 3.0, however, haven't tried it on my 3G just yet.
If you're on a Mac, get iSquirt. Places them into iTunes video if you desire.
check out PPVideoEnabler on cydia. Pixelpipe supports FTP and direct upload to a bunch of social networking sites.
Diskaid works on my 2g aswell.
Installing Netatalk from Cydia also works. You iPhone just appears as a drive in the Finder.
Install the 'Finder' app.
Use it to navigate to your Cycorder video folder.
Press 'Email' and it will mail your video to any address that you choose, through the Mail app.
