SSHing mp4 videos into the iPhone?
So I've got a problem. If I try to play a movie in Quicktime, I get a blue screen crash. I could avoid it altogether, if iTunes wasn't integrated and crashed everytime I try to place a movie on it. Anyone got any solutions to that? Or advice in how could I SSH a mp4 file as a movie to the iPhone?
Install Cycorder from cydia and SFTP your mp4s to /var/mobile/Media/Videos, then not only will you have a nice videorecorder on your iphone, you will also have your own personal video collection you can play back at any time. Give the videos sensible names though, the thumbnail display only seems to work for cycorder recorded videos. If, for whatever resason, you want to keep your recorded stuff seperate from your video collection you cna use mobile terminal to rename the Videos directory, e.g. I do this myself and have set up a small script I call in terminal which does the following.
mv ./Videos ./Videostmp
mv ./Videosback ./Videos
mv ./Videostmp ./Videosback
then when I want to swap collections I open terminal, cd to /var/mobile/Media and type
sh sv (which is what I saved the script as)
Edit: Just incase you have problems geting the mp4 files onto the iPhone, use WinSCP and log in as mobile with the password alpine (unless you'vs changed it). Make sure you have SSH installed on the iPhone and enabled. WinSCP is easiest to use in two window mode and will start you off in /var/mobile when you login as mobile.

Reason: extra info
iTunes and iPhone can only recognize MP4 videos which is in the supported codec like MPEG-4 or H.264. If your MP4 files are encoded with other codec, iTunes and iPhone will refuse to import and play such files.
In order to successfully add MP4 to iTunes as well as sync MP4 to iPod, iPhone, iPad, we have better convert the MP4 files to both iTunes and iOS supported MPEG-4 format
Just google search Step by Step Guide on How to Easy Import MP4 to iTunes and Successfully Transfer MP4 to iPod, iPhone, iPad, Apple TV
you will find a step by step guide on how to convert MP4 to iTunes and iOS devices including iPod/iPhone/iPad/Apple TV compatible video format
