    The developers at Qik have been working day and night to bring you the world’s first live video streaming application for the Apple iPhone 3G! We have received so many requests and wonderful feedback, and we know how eager you all are to get streaming on the iPhone - we have decided to launch straight into public beta!

    Here's how you can get started:

    1. If you have not already, you'll need to sign up at http://qik.com/sign_up and receive an SMS from us to activate the application.
    2. Launch Cydia.
    3. Go to the "Sections" tab at the bottom and scroll down to "Multimedia."
    4. Under Multimedia, you will find Qik. Tap on it then select "Install" at the top right, then in the same spot tap "Confirm."
    5. Now you will see Qik get installed. You may hit the "Return to Cydia" button at the bottom or just quit Cydia when it is done installing.
    6. You'll now notice a "Qik" icon on your home screen - Go ahead and launch it.
    7. As long as your initial signup SMS/text message is still in your inbox for the first launch, your account will be linked to your device.
    8. Make sure you have 3G service or are on WiFi (edge is not sufficient enough to stream video) before you begin broadcasting.
    9. Hit record and enjoy Qik!

    Indeed, Qik is evaluating the possibility of having an option for non-jailbroken iPhone as well. And yes, recording is done through the camera on your iphone. Give it a shot!

    this is very interesting and even better if the user is able to setup the streaming end through thier server...

    i will defiantly get it if it goes on the app store...

    you need to rape apple into letting you guys make a video recording app.

    Its just sad that apple can't work with devs to make the truly great apps accessible without jailbreak
