Turn Your iPhone Into Video Camera (Jailbreak Beginner Vol.2)

21 12 2008

This is volume 2 of the iPhone Jailbreak for Beginner series. In my previous post, i was covered how to use and install Cydia for Jailbreak Beginner Volume 1. The question is, What is the first application to install via Cydia?…

Cycorder is Free Video Application

Personnally, Cycorder is definitely the first application to download and I highly recommend every jailbreak user to put this application on your iPhone. For those who haven’t heard of Cycorder, Cycorder lets capture video using iPhone’s built-in camera. Cycorder is not new to long-time jailbreak user. It’s been released since Aug and I had put up a post about Cycorder at that time. For jailbreak beginner, you may refer to my post on how to install Cycorder via Cydia.

iPhone Video Recorder

Cycorder is not the only application to add video capture capability to iPhone. iPhone Video Recorder also added video capability on iPhone but it’s not free application.It offers a trial version that allows you record video for 30 times. And, it costs you USD$19.95 to upgrade to the full version. iPhone Video Recorder, developed by Dream Catcher is the first comer of iPhone Video Capture application and has been released the application to iPhone since 1.x firmware.

Same as Cycorder, iPhone Video Recorder can record both audio and video to compressed MPEG4 format. In mid-Nov, Dream Catcher released iPhone Video Recorder v3.0. The new version adds:

  1. Real time MOV-format Recording
  2. Huge Improvement in Video quality
  3. Spy-mode Recording (Record video even when iPhone Screen is turned off)

iPhone Video Recorder is available via Cydia. To download, please add iPhone Video Recorder source “http://www.iphonevideorecorder.com” to your Cydia source, and install it. See my post on how to add sources via Cydia.

Which one should you head for?

Compared with Cycoder, iPhone Video Recorder comes with more options (e.g. video mode, audio recording quality) to configure. And, it lets you directly upload the video to YouTube or send it via email. Both applications are awesome and power your iPhone with video capturing feature. But considered the price, the *free* Cycorder is definitely the top choice.
