    you're on 2.1 remember

    i think that u coldn`t open the app, because u're on 2.1, maybe wold work if u follow in order the installation, downloading on cydia, creating the folder, chmod -0775 on the app, maybe if u do that could work

    omg! I totally love this app! I created a /private/media/folder and it worked. the video quailty is wonderful!The only problem is I have to go into diskaid to put my .avi files and .wmv files into it. I don't know how to make a symlink.
