  1. How do I transfre Videos to my pc?

  2. How do I transfer Videos to my pc in case I want to share them with my friends?

  3. SCP to your iPhone and you will find the video files under private/var/mobile/Media/Videos

  4. What’s SCP?

  5. SCP is basically FTP but secure. You can use freeware SCP software: WinSCP for Windows or Fugu for Mac to do this. Then you need to enter your iPhone’s IP address (settings/Wi-Fi/blue arrow for your Wi-Fi connection) and login with username: root and password: alpine. From there go to the directory /private/var/mobile/Media/Videos and you will be able to see your videos. Drag and drop those files to your desktop to transfer them to your computer from your iPhone.

  6. The other things you can do is install Netatalk from Cydia which will make your iPhone show up in Finder under Shared if you have an Apple machine. To do the SCP mentioned above make sure to install OpenSSh first in Cydia.

  7. he guys, There is this Windows program called iPhoneBrowser that you can use to transfer files from your iPhone to your PC. It’s really easy to use. You just install it, then open it and connect your iPhone via USB. It’s much easier than doing FTP. You can get it here

  26. Thanks for this

  27. This program is great thanks

    Tx guys

  29. how do I email direct from the iPhone

  30. Quick Question. Is there an app out that allows you to use a file finder on the iPhone and email files from that app. This would be ideal for the cycorder because we wouldn’t need a PC to transfer and/or send videos. I tried most of the viewfinders iPhone has to offer and I haven’t found one yet.

  31. i still dont see the iphone in finder….need ur assistance

  32. yo, i installed iphone browser but i dont know where to go to get the cycorder videos out to my pc.

  33. I just got this iphone and it keeps saying safari cannot download anything!!!!! …… Like nothing!!!!

  34. email videos and other files from your phone by using Finder. Install this from Cydia. Go into finder, locate the file (move to the photo folder in media and send from there). However, after updating my phone to 2.2 I cannot get this to work.

  35. problem 1
    when i try to establish a wifi connection, I can only WEP encrypt my connection – so i cant type the password alipine because it asks for a specific number of hex or ascii characters?

    this is what comes up in fugu for me

    connect to: (you went over that – blue arrow)
    directory: (you went over that – directory/private…)

    im sure what to enter for port?

  36. i dont know how do get to this folder…can u walk me through finding the file?

  37. i found the folder but…the file is not in any type that i can play…it wont let me “preview the file” either. and when i right click on it there’s no option to copy. only save as etc.


  38. THAT WORKED GREAT,,,,Thanks man….

  39. Hi, Many thanks for the link to the iphone browser software. It allowed me to remove my Cycorder videos without any problem.Just had to highlight and use save as…. Simple.

    Cheers Guys.

  53. Here is how I was able to copy the Cycorder videos from my iPhone to my pc:

    Downloaded iPhoneBroswer 1.8 from using Google Chrome browser & installed to D:\iPhonebrowser. Then I went to that directory, invoked the iphonebrowser.exe file. On the left side pane, I selected the directory structure private/var/mobile/Media/Videos. Selected all the videos and right mouse clicked, selected the Save As option and saved them to a folder on my pc where I keep all my videos. Using RealPlayer, I am able to view those videos with sound :-). Only thing I need to figure out now is how to rotate the videos that I shot using landscape mode so I can view them on my PC without having to tilt it like I do on iPhone..

  57. Hi Jimmy!!!
    You worked great man, iphone browser really worked for me.
    Thankyou very much, I was quite worried by having a video recorder but not been able to share videos with my friends.
    you solved it Buddyy…..Thanks

  58. if you think its so easy then why are asking how to do it. get the iphone browser from google code and if you have any knowledge at all you should be able to figure it out from there.

  59. To ROTATE Videos Use Microsoft Movie Maker

    1.Import the video clip into Windows Movie Maker.

    2.Drag the imported video clip and drop it onto the timeline.

    3.On the Tools menu, click Video Effects.

    4.To rotate the video clip to the right, drag the Rotate 90 video effect and drop it onto the movie on the timeline.


    To rotate the video clip to the left, drag the Rotate 270 video effect and drop it onto the movie on the timeline.

    5.On the File menu, click Save Movie File and follow the instructions in the Save Movie Wizard.
