    Ok, so I'm not sure if it's possible, but is it possible to have a video that you have on your ipod touch appear as a icon on your springboard? If so, how? Thanks!

    like instead of an icon, it shows a little video clip? sorry thats not possible. even if it was, it would probably cause your ipod to lag majorly, especially if you have a couple of these icons and when scrolling through springboard pages.

    No. Not possible. Your iPod would probably flail around in pain if you did that too.

    i don't think he means have the icon playing the video on your springboard, just an icon so when you touch it, it opens the video

    I also don;t think so for the above. Not sure though. It sounds feasible.

    Hello,

    It's impossible to have a video as your icon on the springboard. Why do you want to add a video icon on to your springboard? This would easily drain your iPod Touch battery. It will really finish up quickly, and is not even worth it. I would recommend you to just stick with regular icons.
