View Full Version : Take Video on iPhone

23rd August 2008, 09:31 AM
Cydia just released a new App in their repostiries to allow video capture with the iPhone camera.
Doesn't look to bad though I think there are limitations considering it is an App and not a video camera as such. But it appears to work OK. Captures, encodes and saves, uploads etc etc..

Yep looks alright to me but then again I had an eye operation two days ago so my sight is not up to scratch yet. Look forward to see how it goes for others trying it.

Didn't work for me. Installed it this morning and just had a black screen. Pressed record, let it go for about 10 seconds and stopped it. Got stuck on the encoding screen and I had to reset the phone.

If you purchased the previous version also, your code still work in this one i've found. I purchased it sometime ago, glad i still works! :).

Can't wait for a video app that works for a non-jailbroken iPhone.

Looks very promising :o

A free one was released called Cycorder. Videorecorder3g doesn't work for me, Cycorder does and was free. Win win.

No audio yet though, but it is a start.

There most likely won't be. Not until apple upgrade the camera anyway. I think i heard (and makes sense) that the SDK doesn't allow for such a purpose. If there was going to be video recording, apple would have done it themselves by now. To be honest, the video recording quality isn't all that GREAT with these video recorders. I don't even really bother with it unless its something that is really worth it and it's all i have.

Next iPhone i think we'll see it.

Here's a review of this video application with a sample video as well.

I just installed Cycorder and works well for me. Another good reason to jailbreak :)
