    I apologize if this has already been discussed, but after searching, I couldn't find anything that answered my questions:

    First, is there any trick to formatting the videos I want to use for wallpaper? I used handbrake to convert the .mov files to .mp4.

    Second, when I ssh into my phone, I'm not sure where to put the files. I tried putting them in the same folder as my Winterboard themes, and they show up, but when I respring, nothing happens.

    As I understand it, VWallpaper does not yet work for iPhone 4. When I installed it and tried to run, it just crashed.

    I appreciate any help any of you can provide. Thanks.

    I would suggest downloading the tunnel video wallpaper and replacing the video inside with your own. You can use any video you want. Just copy a video.mp4 and paste it in var/stash/themes/tunnel folder and rename it as the video in the tunnel folder....and respring. You can use video right from your IP4 camera.
