    Maybe I'm a little behind but did anyone else notice that you can receive video messages too? I didn't see anyone mention this.

    Well MMS do also send/receive videos normally so this doesn't surprise me at all. It would be disappointing if it didn't have it since it wouldn't be 100% MMS:p

    If these are genuine...
    Scrub bar - Now that is interesting. With Apple showing an audio recording app that does trim - why not have one that does video trim? Apple seems to have not shown video related iPhone information, though there are hints it's coming at WWDC.

    The audio control/video control hasn't been really optimal on the iPhone - it'll be interesting to see how they've changed it beyond the fized multi-second skip forward/skip back button.

    This is far more interesting than MMS - as the scrub feature and more is likely to be linked to video creation and playback/editing.

    I wish they'd have a control more like the expanding dock - as you could then more easily scrub forward or backward a little bit with more control, rather than jumping in blocky amounts minutes, rather than seconds.

    I'm shocked this hasn't been discovered yet.... this is bound to be on all tech blogs within the hour.

    imho, this is more proof/hints that the new phone will support video capture.

    This just shows more that future iPhones will probably support video. I am already excited for the next release, its time for an upgrade.

    Interesting stuff. I wonder if received MMS images and videos will be transferable to a computer when you sync with iTunes.

    +1, why are non-apple blog reading techies so clueless.

    Take this article for example...
    http://www.thestreet.com/story/1047...the-day-apple-videophone.html?cm_ven=GOOGLEFI

    Shouldn't this guy know that Apple doesn't show their hand all the time? Has he not seen any of the screen shots relating to video capture and sending on the iPhone? I'm so tired of "The Street" being so clueless when it comes to AAPL, Jim Goldman included.

    Questions:

    1. Where did these pictures come from?
    2. I thought the 3.0 beta did not include functional MMS?
    3. If these are from you, how did you test this out (did someone send you a video, did you take the video with your iPhone, etc.)?
    4. Under your post where you posted two pictures, on the first picture, what does the blue arrow on the right allow you to do?
    5. Does it also allow you to send embed YouTube as video MMS?


    On a side note, I wish they would just freakin give us a new Finder icon that gives a central location to house photos, video, music, etc and would also act as a place to store, for example, videos received through MMS.

    There is a thread on here about getting MMS to work on your iphone. All I did was switch my card to a different phone. Then went online and changed my messaging plan, then put my sim card back in my iphone. I asked my brother to send me a pic to test it out and he accidentally sent me a video instead. Whenever someone sends you a mms message the blue arrow will show up next to it allowing you to view it in full screen. And I have not yet tried to send a youtube video.

    I'll try to do that tomorrow.

    And about embedding a youtube video in a message, a doubt that would work. To me it looks like the media player for the videos received through mms is a separate media player than the youtube and the safari media player. My only reasoning is because of the scrub bar.

    I think the scrub bar has HUGE implications for potential iMovie like editing on an iPhone or iPhone-esque device (5-7 inch iPod touch anyone?)

    I posted a video with my thoughts and spreading the word of the thread if you all want to check it out... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mCwAmVlwwWE

    A weird Apple word for the progress node of an audio or video track (the thingy you drag forward or backward to jump forward or backward).

    There is also a "new" looking scrub bar for audio books and video podcasts in 3.0b. It has instructions that pop up on the screen when you press and hold on it. Very interesting.
