    i just was going to post this as a reply to a thread, but thought i would post it to help anyone searching later on who may find this thread:

    if using windows the steps are the same, but download winscp to be able to access your iphone...

    i havent booted into osx for a while, but IIR the easiest way is to:

    1. in cydia install SSH. it is command prompt and classified as "advanced" but dont worry as you just install it one time and never worry.

    2. install bossprefs and make sure that ssh is switched to "on"

    3. install cyberduck (i think it is called) for osx. it is free, so just download it.

    4. goto your iphone settings, get to where you select whatever wifi network you are on in and look make sure your iphone is connected to your home internet with wifi (not just 3g)

    5. make sure your iphone is connected to your personal home wireless network, and press the blue arrow to the right of that connection.

    6. make a note of the ip address it has. this would look like 192.168.1.xx in most cases.

    WAIT A SECOND:
    It is a good idea now to change your auto lock (aka power off) settings to either 5 minutes or never.
    The reason is that if your iphone turns itself to powersave mode and you are in the middle of browsing it or transfering files you will lose the connection and need to reconnect all over again. it is annoying and if transfering a large video can take a while to transfer all over again.
    just be sure to set it to 1 minute afterwards so you dont kill your battery later on.

    7. in cyberduck select new connection and enter the host name as the ip addres your iphone has.

    for username use "root" and password is "alpine" (no quotation marks) and the port is 22

    make sure it is set to connect as "scp"

    8. click connect and wait. it can take up to a FULL MINUTE to log on the first time. if you have any questions about keychain passwords etc just connect anyways, and dont worry if it says something about unauthorized access or whatevever.

    9. by now you are in the iphone, right? you should see directories and on the TOP of all these directories is either an UP arrow or two dots (..)
    Click that until it shows you are in the /var directory

    the directory you want to find is:
    /var/mobile/Media/Videos

    so once in /var double click on /mobile and then on /media and then /videos

    your videos are there.
    yah!

    then if you want to convert them to youtube, and you are on windows you use RAD VIDEO TOOLS by BINK
    google it.

    it is free.

    *shakes head*

    Why would you bump something like this?

    For anyone looking, install PPVenabler in Cydia and turn that on for Cycorder and it will import any videos with your photos.

    ViViDboarder, PPVenabler isn't in any of the std repos. Do you know where to find it?

    It's been removed due to some conflict with something new.

    Shame though, a great gizmo.

    You can do it with SSH though. I'll post directions later. :)

    DIY PPVenabler (Cycorder on Photo Import and for PixelPipe)

    This should work... I'm going to tell you two ways. One the GUI way and one the command line way. First GUI.

    1. Get iFile (shareware) from Cydia
    2. Navigate to /var/mobile/Media/DCIM
    3. Hit EDIT and then hit the + to add a new directory. Name it CycorderVideos.
    4. Hit done and go back to /var/mobile/Media.
    5. You should see a folder named Videos. Go in that folder.
    6. Here are all your Cycorder videos. Copy them all by hitting the edit button and then paste them into your new folder in /DCIM/CycorderVideos
    7. Go back to /var/mobile/Media and now delete the Videos folder.
    8. Now hit EDIT and then the + to add a new Symbolic Link.
    9. Name the link Videos (caps do matter) and set the target to /private/var/mobile/Media/DCIM/CycorderVideos
    10. I'm not sure if it'll matter, but set the owner to mobile on the link and the folder.
    11. Good to go!

    Command Line:
    SSH to your phone as the user 'mobile' not as 'root'.
    If you're already logged in as root try
    Code:
    su mobile
    Run the following commands:
    Code:
    mkdir /var/mobile/Media/DCIM/CycorderVideos
    mv /var/mobile/Media/Videos/* /var/mobile/Media/DCIM/CycorderVideos/
    rmdir /var/mobile/Media/Videos
    ln -s /var/mobile/Media/DCIM/CycorderVideos /var/mobile/Media/Videos
    
    Then you should be good to go.
