    Ok so I tried this app called SwapPhotos on my jb 1.1.4 Touch.

    The script hasn't been updated for the 1.1.4 firmware so it was making changes in the wrong directory.

    After manualy changing the script so it would work I really liked it, really useful to hide your porn images when lending it to a friend for a couple of minutes.

    So I got this idea of doing the same for videos, making some changes to the script used by swapPhotos. Problem is, I can't seem to find the folder where they are hiding...

    Anyone knows where they're at?

    Ok I think I found out where they are.

    It looks like iTunes keep the movies mixed with the music files in /private/var/mobile/Media/iTunes_Control/Music/

    This makes the operation even more difficult.

    Ok, I've got another plan.

    I tried copying a vid over to my Ipod, not through iTunes but copying it directly to the filesystem.
    Then using MobileFinder to try and play it... problem now is how to make it play.

    Get iPHPPod from i8nstaller, and place your files into the directory under setting in iphppod.

    Have Fun!

    Use Safari to navigate to it on your iPod. Try:

    Code:
    file:///path/from/root/to/the/file
    Or, alternatively, install Apache or LightTPD from Installer, and just go to

    Code:
    http://localhost/
    You can graphically navigate to the file from there.

    Hope this helps a little,

    Whoops... I forgot this was about getting your script to work. Anyway, that's how you play a video
