    hi,everybody. I downloaded mplayer from cydia and I downloaded some .avi files from safari using the safari download plug in that came with dtunes. I also have the finder app from installer. anyway my question is how to you move a file from /library/downloads to /private/var/media? /library/downloads is where my.avi files are located.
    thanks,supergirl13

    Like with a symlink, on the ipod itself, or via ssh?

    1. Make sure that yours is jailbroken iPhone as MPlayer is only available for jailbroken iPhones which have 2.0 or above firmware. So if your iPhone is having lower firmware version you need to update it to 2.0 or above.
    2. Open Cydia installer app.
    3. Update all the pending updates in Cydia installer.
    4. Search MPlayer in search section of Cydia installer.
    5. Tap on install button. It’ll install MPlayer in the iPhone
    6. Connect iPhone to WinSCP and go to /private/var path
    7. Look for media folder and if there is no media folder in this location then create one. This is the folder which will contain all the MPlayer’s playable files.
    8. Copy movie files to /private/var/media directory.
    9. Open MPlayer in iPhone. It will show you the list of all files present in above folder.
    10. Tap on any file you would like to play.
