I can't get this to show up on installer even after installing the source and refreshing. Thanks to zavrus1 I was able to download it through rapidshare but now that I have the file I have no idea how to install it. I do have WinSCP so if someone would be so kind to tell me where to install all the files it would be much appreciated.

I am trying to use a silent video with a seperate ringtone but I cannot get the ringtone to work. I've used many formats such as .m4v .aiff .mp4 .mp3 but none work. What should i use and is there a time constraint?
07-01-2008, 10:24 AM #83Worthless... in its current form
This app is actually quite useless in it's current form. Hopefully it'll work better in later releases.
1. It's too friggen difficult to get a video to look good and play correctly as a "VideosTone." They even suggest that you buy a $40 piece of software to convert your video to the right size?!?
2. Even if you do get the video to look right when you're ringing, try putting your phone on silent. Oh yeah, it still plays the audio. The only way to combat this is to pull the audio from your video all together and then create a ringtone of the same bit and upload them separately to their respective folders.
3. Once you have the audio separate from the video you have to set them both to play separately in the preference pane... but they don't play at the same time!!! There's really no way to sync the audio with the video!
4. Are you kidding me?!? I just wasted two hours of my life converting and cropping and moving files to find out that it doesn't work. Yeah, if I wanted to have audio that's 3 seconds ahead of my video, I'd love this app.
As it stands... it is completely worthless.

You put the files in /var/mobile/Media/VideoTone/Video

In the zip file there are 2 folders and one single file. I have one folder named Ring and it contains two files, .DS_Store and Default.aif. I have another folder named Video and it has 7 files including 6 videos and .DS_Store. Along with those 2 folders I see another single file called .DS_Store.
Do all of those files go in the folder you mentioned?

Works a treat here had to reset the phone and Bang worked like a charm

Everything works great here except for when the phone goes on silent, the ringer doesn't. I know this was mentioned before but I just wanted to add this is a great app IMHO, I know the video size will be figured out by someone. I already downloaded some other videos that were in the repo. It was 30mb but well worth it. Beware though, for reason unknown it took forever to download the program as well as the videos. I suspect that might be due to the large number of people downloading it yesterday but not sure. Let it be though, it will finish!

I took simple video of my friend from iPhone with iPhoneVIDEORECORDER, put it to my Mac, killed out the sound in Quicktime player, cropped, saved back to iPhone, assigned standard OldPhone.aiff as a sound and voila!
Problems still are -
can not switch off vibration;
sound only plays once (no loop);
can not assign that to a person;
can not combine it with photographed contacts - it is needed to have selection.

Well I'm running 1.1.1 from apple and when I installed VideosTone it caused my NetServices to stop working. I cannot SSH into the phone now. If I remove the program only and leave the Dynamic Module Loader, my services come back. So there is a bug with the program.
Anybody else experiencing the same issue? Any possible fix?

i really wish when you guys post new apps and hype em all up, you would post wether or not it is a paytoplay app.
i am so sick of going thru all the trouble of installing a source, then the apps needed to run this app, then the app itself, any updates or addons,
and then see i have to pay for full functionality.
then i have to uninstall it all and usually, this process f***s up my phone and i end up restoring.

okay so i have a video that is without sound and i set the ringtone to "none" so whenever it rings i hear no sound at all. is there anyway to allow it to play my default ringtone instead of just nothing at all? i dont want to just convert the ringtone to aiff and put it in the folder.

i followed the procedure. Dynamic module first. Then VideoTones 1.1 Then rebooted iPhone.
Iphone had a bit of trouble restating. Apple Logo... then blank screen. So I connected to computer and iTunes. It restarted and returned to normal Home Screen. I when to Settings and enabled. Back to Installer and did the update. VT update. For mute function. Tested. Works fine with sound. Download the movie files...the 30mb one and I guess I will SSH into the phone and add the files to You put the files in /var/mobile/Media/VideoTone/Video I have not done this yet..but will. Any advise on adding the files I downloaded?
Also Yesterday after I added the Source....I had a Video Package in installer... Today its gone... Anyone know why?

I found an easy and cheap work around to getting easy video ringtones on to videotone
Download MxTube, copy the video file from its directory using finder and throw it in the video tone video folder, and done you can use youtube videos on video tone
