The best iPhone apps the year!

*Cydia: Jay Freeman’s installer application, Cydia, is included when you jailbreak your phone with QuickPwn or the PwnageTool. It’s with Cydia that you download third-party applications to your iPhone or first-generation iPod touch. (Included are applications for regular folks as well as developers.

*Cycorder: A free application authored by Freeman, Cycorder lets you shoot videos with your iPhone’s camera at frame rates from 6 to 15 frames per second. The resulting movies are encoded with MJPEG compression and are playable on your Mac.

*Winterboard: Another Freeman creation, integrated into Cydia, the free Winterboard lets you skin the iPhone and iPod touch’s interface with themes also available via Cydia.

*Podcaster: This app by Alex Sokirynsky lets you stream and download podcasts directly to your iPhone or iPod touch—no iTunes required. Apple barred the controversial Podcaster from the App Store for allegedly “duplicating” functionality of the iPhone. Not to be denied, Sokirynsky began distributing it through Cydia and asking $5 per copy for his trouble. It’s a polished and extremely useful application.

*Snapture:If you’ve ever wished that your iPhone’s camera behaved more like a real digital camera and let you shoot in black-and-white and featured digital zoom, timer functions, and burst mode,’s free Snapture is the answer to that wish.

*Netatalk: Netatalk is the free iPhone/iPod touch version of the open-source implementation of the AppleTalk networking protocol. With it installed on your iPhone or iPod touch, you can gain access to the device’s file system from your computer, just as you can with any other networked device. Having this kind of access is extremely helpful for moving files on and off the iPhone or iPod touch.

*OpenSSH: The free OpenSSH, integrated into Cydia, provides another way into your jailbroken iPhone or iPod touch. With it installed, you can use the Secure File Transfer Protocol to get into the guts of your device.

What is AVCHD and how to convert and burn AVCHD on mac!

AVCHD (Audio and video Compression for High Definition or Advanced Video Codec High Definition) is a high-definition and standard-definition recording format for use in digital tapeless camcorders.

In May 2006 Panasonic and Sony jointly announced AVCHD as a tapeless high definition recording format. It is said that AVCHD is just a transition format before blur-ray disk camcorder face to world. Whatever which format will be used to support blue-ray, one more thing is clear, high definition video is more and more universal and not limited to professional field. The AVCHD file extention is .mts in camcorder and .m2ts after import to computer.

AVCHD (AVC-HD, AVC HD) video is recorded using the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 video compression codec. Audio is stored in either compressed form (Dolby AC-3), or uncompressed form (multichannel PCM).

The format was based on existing Blu-ray Disc specification, the structure is derived from the Blu-ray Disc specification, but AVCHD can not play on a blu-ray disk. AVCHD specification allows using several kinds of recording media, in particular recordable DVD discs, SD/SDHC memory cards, memory cards and hard disk drives. AVCHD specification allows for both high definition and standard definition recording. For high definition, all major variations are supported, including 720p, 1080i and 1080p.

Recorded AVCHD video can be played back in variety of ways:
1.directly from a camcorder on a HDTV, through HDMI or component-video cable;
2.burned onto writable Blu-ray disc, then played on a Blu-ray Disc player or on a LAYSTATION 3 gaming console;
3.recorded on a solid-state memory card (SDHC, Memory Stick), then played from many Blu-ray Disc players, on select Panasonic HDTV sets and on a PLAYSTATION 3 gaming console; 4.burned onto DVD disc, then played from most Blu-ray Disc players;
5.on a computer, playing from the camcorder connected via USB as an external storage device (with requisite software such as media player with AVC decoder installed);
6.on a computer, playing directly from recorded media using a DVD drive or a memory card reader (with requisite software such as media player with AVC decoder installed).

Google admits breaking App Store rules!

Google acknowledged breaking the official rules of Apple's iPhone software development kit when it created the latest version of the Google Mobile application for the iPhone, but denied a more serious charge.
A Google spokesman confirmed Tuesday that Google Mobile uses undocumented APIs (application programming interfaces) in order to use the iPhone's proximity sensor to prompt a verbal search. iPhone developers were only supposed to use the APIs that Apple published in its SDK when they create their applications under the terms of that agreement.
Google has denied, however, a more serious charge that it was linking to private or dynamic frameworks in the Google Mobile application. That's considered a big no-no in the development community.

The problem with using undocumented APIs is that your application code could break in the future as Apple updates its software, but a lot of developers appear to have taken that risk in order to deliver a cool feature, such as Google's verbal search prompt.
Under the original terms of the SDK, however, applications using such techniques were not supposed to make it through to the App Store. As a result, other developers who played strictly by the SDK rules would not have felt it possible to create an application that duplicated Google's voice prompt using the proximity sensor, whereas those who had the resources to quickly rewrite anything that ran afoul of the App Store gatekeepers could push ahead and test Apple's limits.
Given Apple's uneven process for approving applications onto the App Store, the question has continued to come up as to whether Apple's ability to keep up with the flood of applications into the App Store has been stretched to the breaking point. It's not clear whether Apple knew Google was using the undocumented APIs when it approved Google Mobile, or whether it simply missed that code.
Google might be forced to rewrite the code for Google Mobile or change the way the application uses the proximity sensor if Apple decides to enforce the terms of the SDK. A number of Apple representatives appeared to be on vacation this week, and so requests for comment are not likely to be immediately returned.

Will the First Flash Files on iPhone Be Ads?

Stop me if you’ve heard this one, but Greystripe, a San Francisco-based rich media advertising platform for mobile content claims to have developed ads including Flash IAB medium rectangles and game-in-game (or “tailgate”) ads giving advertisers the ability to target the iPhone audience for the first time with Flash content.

In an effort to make it easier for the online media buyer to purchase mobile, Greystripe claims to have brought creative power to the iPhone with Flash creation tools allowing brands to extend any online advertising campaign directly into mobile content as well as the ability to create miniature advertiser-branded games in Flash and place them before, during or after existing iPhone games.

“Using the iPhone’s revolutionary platform, Greystripe has solved the serving, reporting, third-party tracking and, best of all, ad creation problems that have plagued the mobile advertising industry since inception,” says Michael Cai, Director of Digital Media and Gaming at Parks Associates, according to a BusinessWire release made public on Thursday.

Michael Chang, CEO and Co-founder of Greystripe was quoted as saying, “We have made it easy for advertisers by removing barriers to execution. Brands like Jeep, RadioShack, New Line Cinema, Rock the Vote and Yahoo! have seen strong results.”

If true, this would seem to come as news to Adobe, which claims to have been thus far stymied in the effort to develop a mobile version of Flash that is compatible with Apple’s SDK for iPhone developers.

Have you seen any Flash-based ads on your iPhone?

Its design goal is to allow multiplexing of digital video and audio and to synchronize the output. Transport stream offers features for error correction for transportation over unreliable media, and is used in broadcast applications such as DVB and ATSC. It is contrasted with program stream, designed for more reliable media such as DVDs.
TS format is a container format that encapsulates packetized elementary streams and other data.
Important elements of a transport stream: Packet, PID, Programs, Program Specific Information (PSI) , 1 PAT , PMT , PCR , Null packets

How to convert MKV WMV AVI MOD MTS VIDEO_TS and other encode videos to ipod on mac!

iPod is a brand of portable media players designed and marketed by Apple Inc. and launched on October 23, 2001.
The product line-up includes the hard drive-based iPod Classic, the touchscreen iPod Touch, the video-capable iPod Nano, the screenless iPod Shuffle and the iPhone. Former products include the compact iPod Mini and the spin-off iPod Photo (since reintegrated into the main iPod Classic line). iPod Classic models store media on an internal hard drive, while all other models use flash memory to enable their smaller size (the discontinued Mini used a Microdrive miniature hard drive). As with many other digital music players, iPods, excluding the iPod Touch, can also serve as external data storage devices. Storage capacity varies by model.

The iPod line can play several audio file formats including MP3, AAC/M4A, Protected AAC, AIFF, WAV, Audible audiobook, and Apple Lossless. The iPod Photo introduced the ability to display JPEG, BMP, GIF, TIFF, and PNG image file formats.

The iPod line can play three encoding types videos, and they are all in .mp4 postfix:
H.264 video: up to 1.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Low-Complexity version of the H.264 Baseline Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats;
H.264 video: up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Baseline Profile up to Level 3.0 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file
MPEG-4 video: up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Simple Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats.

As large number of videos are not .mp4 videos and also the .mp4 videos are in different encoding, so if you want to put the popular videos like avi mkv, wmv, mp4, mod, mov, quicktime etc. to ipod on mac, or if you want to put the videos from camcorder/camera to ipod on mac (always in .m2ts, .mts, .tp, .trp), you need a prefessional mac dvd to ipod movie converter and ipod video converter to convert the videos to the right .mp4 videos.

Video_TS is a folder in DVD , you can also rip a dvd to mp4 video, here is a guide about how to convert video ts to ipod on mac!

What's WMV!

WMV--Windows Media Video is a compressed video file format for several proprietary codecs developed by Microsoft. The original codec, known as WMV, was originally designed for Internet streaming applications, as a competitor to RealVideo. The other codecs, such as WMV Screen and WMV Image, cater for specialized content. Through standardization from the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE), WMV has gained adoption for physical-delivery formats such as HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc.
A WMV file is in most circumstances encapsulated in the Advanced Systems Format (ASF) container format. The file extension .WMV typically describes ASF files that use Windows Media Video codecs. The audio codec used in conjunction with Windows Media Video is typically some version of Windows Media Audio, or in rarer cases, the deprecated Sipro audio codec. Microsoft recommends that ASF files containing non-Windows Media codecs use the generic .ASF file extension.

Although WMV is generally packed into the ASF container format, it can also be put into the AVI or Matroska container format. The resulting files claim the .AVI, or .MKV file extensions, respectively. WMV can be stored in an AVI file when using the WMV 9 Video Compression Manager (VCM) codec implementation. Another common way to store WMV in an AVI file is to use the VirtualDub encoder.

This container can optionally support digital rights management using a combination of elliptic curve cryptography key exchange, DES block cipher, a custom block cipher, RC4 stream cipher and the SHA-1 hashing function.

What's MKV!

MKV(Matroska Multimedia Container) is a container format developed by Matroska. It can hold different types of video and audio. For example, there might be an .avi file contained within the .mkv file.

The Matroska Multimedia Container is an open standard free Container format, a file format that can hold an unlimited number of video, audio, picture or subtitle tracks inside a single file. It is intended to serve as a universal format for storing common multimedia content, like movies or TV shows. Matroska is similar in conception to other containers like AVI, MP4 or ASF, but is entirely open in specification, with implementations consisting mostly of open source software. Matroska file types are .MKV for video (with subtitles and audio), .MKA for audio-only files and .MKS for subtitles only. High Definition movies in 720 or 1080 pixel width format are often encoded and packaged as a Matroska format video with a .mkv file extension.

Matroska file types.mkv : Generally video files, as well those containing audio ( movies ) or video only..mka : audio only files, can contain any supported audio compression format, such as MP2, MP3, Vorbis, AAC, AC3, DTS, PCM and soon MPC ( musepack ).mks : a so called 'elementary' matroska stream containing any subtitles stream.

Matroska is an English word derived from the Russian word "matryoshka", which means "nesting doll" (the common Russian egg-shaped doll within a doll). This is a play on the container (media within a form of media/doll within a doll) aspect of the matryoshka as it is a container for visual and audio data. The transliteration may be confusing for Russian speakers, as the Russian word "matroska" (матроска) actually refers to a sailor suit.

QuickTime update improves compatibility with iChat

Apple released a second update late Monday, this time for its QuickTime media software.

According to the notes provided with the update, QuickTime H.264 Compatibility Update 7.5.5 improves QuickTime compatibility with iChat. Considering the fact that this update is for H.264, it seems obvious that the update addresses issues with iChat video.
The 3.3MB update is available from Apple’s built-in software update mechanism found on all Mac OS X computers.
Apple also released an update for its MacBook and MacBook Pro notebooks on Monday, fixing issues with the trackpad.

iPod tidbits

iPod nano and classic audio recording
If you have an iPhone headset (or a mic-equipped headset compatible with the iPhone) you can use it to record voice memos on your 4G iPod nano and 2G iPod classic. These headsets do not record with the previous nano or classic.

iPod touch with iPhone headset
You’ve likely heard that quickly triple-pressing the microphone button on the iPhone’s headset causes the iPhone running 2.1 software to move back one track. Maybe you haven’t heard that it works exactly the same way with this headset plugged into a 2G iPod touch.

iPod touch audio recording
The 2G iPod touch will record audio from a microphone—someday. Although the feature is built in, Apple told me that developers will have to modify their applications to bring that capability to the 2G iPod touch, as enabling it for the iPhone doesn’t also enable it for the iPod touch. Should you try to install an application that includes audio recording to a 2G iPod touch, iTunes will tell you it can’t be done.

Bharti Airtel announces Equal Monthly Installment (EMI) plans for iPhone 3G

Those ridiculous iPhone 3G pricing plans bogging you down? Then perhaps you should try the newly-announced Bharti Airtel Equal Monthly Installment plans.

It it said that the EMI plans make purchasing the iPhone 3G simple and convenient. And above all, it makes the iPhone 3G affordable, or course. Or least, that’s what Airtel is saying.

The new EMI plans will be available to all VISA cardholders of ICICI bank, HDFC bank, SBI Cards and Citibank. Bharti Airtel hopes to sell more iPhones with the introduction of these new plans.

Certain SBI and Citibank card holders can even benefit from the new plans even if they’ve already bought the iPhone. This only applies to customers who have bought within the last ten days, though, so double check the date on that iPhone 3G receipt of yours before you get your hopes up.

What is the difference between trial version and full version!

Sometimes, the new customers asked me about the difference between trial version and full version of the series of DVD and Video tools.
It is common in the following three situations:
1.A watermark on the output file
2.Time limitation
3.Function limitation

BTW, i suggest that you should better download the trial version and have a try to see whether it fits your demand. So many similar tools in the market, you can download several from different company to make a compare and choose the most appropriate one.

How to watch and play Internet videos on iPod touch and iPhone 3G?

I have thought that i could watch online videos besides Youtube on iPhone or iPhone 3G without limit. I did my best to search everywhere for the answer without luck!

Someone recommend the iTransmogrify!. OK, it realy do something for me.
At the beginning, it is misleading that it can make me watch any videos from any site after i bookmark the iTransmogrify!. Not so. It can only enable you to watch videos which embed Flash content from YouTube.
I was going to watch yahoo video, it asked for Flash Player, but i could not reach it.

I opened '', the left bigger screen video from Youtube can be played using iTransmogrify!, but when i clicked at the others small shows, nothing happened.
Disappointment cover my sky! Can i conclude that there is no way to watch any video on the internet with the iphone/ipod touch so far?

Below is a step by step video from Youtube about how to bookmark iTransmogrify!, at
least, it can enable you watch embeded Youtube videos from other sites.

As i tried so much, maybe the only way to watch wonderful online videos besides Youtube
and embeded Youtube videos is to download the videos first and then convert it to ipod/iphone format.
You must have heard Videodownloader. This is a plug-in for Firefox. It enables you capture streaming video from website.

Download site:
Here is a demo for you about how to use Videodownloader:

But i used to Realplayer. Check 'Enable browser download button' checkbox while you are installing the tool.

Open a video site in Firefox and select one, a little pop window with 'Download This Video' will appear above the right corner of the video.

Ok, that's all, i am going to take iSkysoft Video Converter for Mac as an example to introduce how to convert dowloaded videos to ipod/iphone/iphone 3g on mac at the next topic.

It would be wonderful if we can take iPhone,iPod,mp3 player along while go to surf or swim. Now, H2O make it come true.
