    I just wanted to know if it's possible to add videos to MxTube through SSH. I use TubeTV on my Mac to download YouTube videos and I want to keep them all in the same place on my iPod, rather than clutter up my TV Shows or Movies.

    I tried adding videos directly to var/mobile/Media/MxTube, but it doesn't show up. Anyone know how to resolve this?

    Hi mate,

    I have found a way to add videos to MxTube.

    1. Add videos you want to add to var/mobile/Media/MxTube
    2. Rename files to short name without spaces
    3. You have to create a thumbnail for each video and rename the extension to .thm
    4. Once all video you require have been done the above way, go into var/mobile/Library/MxTube
    5. Edit VideoLibrary.plist file and copy the section that starts with <dict> and cop to </dict>
    6. Press enter and paste the information you have copied.
    7. Edit the follwoing fields

    "<key>author</key>
    <string>stephane555</string> <------------ This field
    <key>duration</key>
    <string>03:27</string> <------------ This field
    <key>high</key>
    <string>/var/mobile/Media/MxTube/8u0iuCqIbbM-high.mp4</string> <---- This field with the name of the file you copied
    <key>id</key>
    <string>8u0iuCqIbbM</string> <------------ This field with the name of the file you copied
    <key>thumbnail</key>
    <string>/var/mobile/Media/MxTube/8u0iuCqIbbM.thm</string> <------------ This field
    <key>title</key>
    <string>Jordin Sparks and Chris Brown "No Air" on American Idol</string> <------------ This field"

    8. Save that file and close you SSH program, exit MxTube and then go back into it, you video will now be in the list.

    I hope this helps you

    Just wondering, why do you want to put videos you have on a PC/Mac onto MxTube? You might as well put them onto your mobilemusicplayer instead
