I've been wanting to use my iPhone as a camcorder or to take small video clips. I can't for the life of me believe that I haven't ran across anything that allows me to do it. Can anyone shed some light?

I agree. And now you can also add an app from Cydia that will allow you to instantly upload the video from your phone to YouTube or email or where ever.

The app you need from Cydia is PPEnabler, and from appstore you'll need PixelPipe.

I just searched for it, it looks like it's actually called PPVideoEnabler.

If the 3rd party people can make a video recorder, would it be reasonable to assume that one will be coming out for non-jailbreakers? If not in an update then from the app-store? Or is there some hardware issue I am naive about that would prevent them from wanting this out there?

That's kinda what I was looking for too. I use AT&T and kinda like it. I really don't have a reason to jailbrake my phone and hate to do it for one app.

^just because you jailbreak your phone doesn't mean you can't still use AT&T.

jailbreaking opens it up to 3rd party apps (like video recording, laptop tethering, themes, etc)
unlocking is what allows you to use it with different carriers

HUGE difference....

let me know if you need help jailbreaking

Thanks, but I do understand the process and have jailbroke and unlocked a few iPhone before. I just prefer not to have "mine" jailbroke. I'm just anxiously awaiting a 3rd party program on iTunes. I just can't believe no one has come out with one yet.

well from your previous post it didn't sound like you knew much about it. sounds like you have a perfectly good reason to jailbreak, along with many other reasons waiting in cydia. to each his own though, have fun with your iPhone without video recording :)
