    Kinda like simplify music but I want to be able to upload videos to a site
    Then I can view them with the iPhone app

    I saw in the app store something called video safe
    But this uses my iPhone hardrive space and 8g is not enough

    Not YouTube , these are private vids

    Anybody know an app that can do this?

    Qik is for streaming videos FROM your iPhone. If I were you, I'd just pay for some FTP storage somewhere. Or, if you have a MobileMe account, you can just upload your videos to your MobileMe iDisk and use MobileFiles or something like that to get access to it.

    Or try Mediafire or a site like that.

    He wants to upload videos to a website so he can view them on his iPhone.

    That is not what Qik does.

    As long as the video is formatted correctly you can just upload it anywhere and play it in Safari, you don't need an app. If you're uploading the videos yourself just make sure they're iPhone friendly. If you want to upload anything at all and transcode it, it will have to require a server component (like Orb) because the iPhone isn't powerful enough to transcode on the fly (not to mention how much space that would require).

    You mean upload them anywhere like on dailymotion?
    These vids are private not for public view

    I would of thought there was an app for this
    Upload your vids to there site and view them with there app in your iphone

    This concept for an app doesn't exist?

    qik is only available for jailbroken phones now because the iphone 3G does not support video recording. once the new iphone comes out im sure they will try and release an official app.

    ive never used qik, but my understanding of it is you stream the video to the website but the videos also are saved. if you go to the qik site you will see that people have old videos they have streamed still uploaded. this would meet his needs.

    Okay, maybe you're not understanding this. He doesn't want to RECORD AND STREAM VIDEO from his iPhone camera. He wants to take videos from his computer and UPLOAD THEM TO SOME WEBSPACE so that he can PLAY them on his iPhone.

    Qik does the EXACT OPPOSITE of what he wants.

    Signup for a free domain and webspace. Upload videos in .mp4 format. Create a HTML page with links to the .mp4 files and there you go. Streaming video. :D

    I could set it up for you if you want?

    Answer: iVid

    I use it almost everyday and it's exactly what you're looking for. It works over 3g and wifi and lets me access my over 500 tv shows on my home computer. I think it's 3 bucks and totally worth it (I am in no way affiliated with the app).

    For over 3g, I suggest converting your videos to a small size. I use iSquint and converted them to about 25 megabytes per 24 minute tv show.

    I am not very techie, so bear with me.

    I have a similar request, as the OP did, except in my case, I want to watch videos on my i-Device without uploading them to a website first.

    The videos are say from torrents, or from other phones' video cameras, etc. which are on my Win2k PC. I have AirSharing (Pro) which I use mostly for reading PDFs, and also Simplify Media (2.0), which I think is only for mp3s.

    Would OrbLive be the correct app for this purpose?

    I never bought it, as I knew Slingbox Media was coming soon.

    Get 32GB iPhone 3GS and keep all your videos with you:cool:. Ok Ok. I know 32 GB wont cut it. I have over 300 GB worth movies converted for iPhone using Hand Brake. And another 2-300 GB downloaded from internet which I dont need to tell you what kind they are:D. And I believe it wont be hard to find to find people who have ten times more than that even on these forums.

    Coming to the point, as mentioned by other posters Orb should be the best option. You really dont want to pay for 500+ GB online storage. Orb will stream all the files straight from your computer. You`ll need to keep the PC on all the time though.

    You can use youtube for private videos now. With 3.0, the youtube app lets you log-in to your account. There you can go into "My Videos" and see all your public videos, but also all the ones set to private. Of course, that is if youtube 10 minute limit is not a problem.

    how do I get pass the 10 minute limit?

    and is there an app from cydia or the app store that can do what I want

    currently im using "video safe" but with like 3gb of vids it takes for ever to backup with itunes, also if I have to do a restore,I would have to put the videos back in via wifi and that takes a while
