    How To Make Your Own Custom vWallpaper (Windows only)

    Checklist:
    1. Window Movie Maker (soon coming in the guide)
    2. A video Converter http://www.[PIRACY.mu].com/?d=3FEZ45Q0
    3. A program to SSH into
    4. Loads of room in the computer (at least 30GB this will not taken loads of space)
    5. Yourself
    6. And patience

    Get Videos from Youtube

    You will need to find a good looking vPaper (that’s what I call it) I will use this one http://youtube.com/watch?v=r0pknQocc-I&feature=related

    Ok you found the perfect wallpaper right? Now how to download…

    There is two ways to do so (both are easy “in my POV” but I prefer the first one)

    <~~~~JavaScrip Way!~~~~>

    Ok copy this link
    Code:
    javascript:if%20(document.getElementById('download-youtube-video')==null%20&&%20!!(document.location.href.match(/http:\/\/[a-zA-Z\.]*youtube\.com\/watch/)))%20{var%20yt_mp4_path='http://www.youtube.com/get_video?fmt=18&video_id='+swfArgs['video_id']+'&t='+swfArgs['t'];%20var%20div_embed=document.getElementById('watch-embed-div');div_embed.innerHTML=div_embed.innerHTML+'<br%20/>%20<span%20id=\'download-youtube-video\'><a%20href=\''+yt_mp4_path+'\'>Download%20as%20MP4</a>%20'+%20%20((navigator.userAgent.indexOf('Safari')!=-1)?'(control-click%20and%20select%20<i>Download%20linked%20file%20as</i>)':('(right-click%20and%20select%20<i>Save%20'+%20(navigator.appName=='Microsoft%20Internet%20Explorer'?'target':'link')%20+'%20as)</i>'))+'</span>';}void(0);
    And save it as your favorites. Give it a name and everything. I save it as “Get YouTube Video”.

    Now find that Video that you want to have as your vPaper and then click that link you just save “Get YouTube Video”.

    At the end of the description there will be a link saving “Download as MP4 (Right-click and select Save As)”. Well do what it say, but make sure you know where you save it as.

    !The Long and Painful Way! (well not really just it to much WORK)

    Watch this video first on how to download them. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UcufSfSvgRk
    MAKE SURE YOU CHANGE THE TITLE AND MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHERE YOU SAVE THEM AS!!!! I LIKE TO SAVE THEM IN A FOLDER CALLED “Download”

    Ok now you need to install a Video Converter called “Super” it works like a charm. The download link is here ~~~~->http://www.[PIRACY.mu].com/?d=3FEZ45Q0<-~~~~ (I Scan it and it is fine). Install it and what not. You should see something like this. Now make sure the setting is this as followed.

    ok to get the video scale size like the picture you have to press "more" 3 times till you get it. once there type in 320 and 480.

    Now since that is done right click anywhere on the interface. And click “Output File Saving Management”. Now this will save the converted video to the selected folder. I suggest using windows default Video folder under your User Name. And click ok.

    Now once again right click at the big blank space at the bottom there and click “Add Multimedia Files” find the video(s) you got from YouTube. Click on the video(s) and click open.

    Make sure the video(s) is checked. And click “Encode (Active Files)".
    Wait till it finishes converting. (this is where the Patiance comes in.

    When done go to the “Video” folder. You should see the converted vids there, if not change the output folder again. And re-encode. If you want to preview the the video that you converted click "open". Watch it. oh man does it look nice!!!!

    Now open whatever program you ssh your ipod/iphone to. I use CuteFTP Pro

    NOW

    IF You Have Anyone of these version…

    vWallpaper Version 0.3

    To get your own videos to work, the video must be in .mp4 or .mov format.
    Put the video in /Applications/vWallpaper/Library/Skrew/Videos
    AND
    /Library/Skrew/Videos


    vWallpaper Version 0.5/0.6

    Videos go in /Var/Mobile/Media/Skrew/Videos

    Make sure the vids are permission to 644 not 755 or 0755.

    Respring ipod/iphone and go to the app “vWallpaper” and select videos. Then Respring the board and BAMM!!! The custom vPaper is on!! N-joi!!!
