    I just got the 8830 two days ago from sprint. I cannot open any videos whatsoever and was wondering if I am doing something wrong. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi lourokk! Welcome to Pinstack! Have you checked what format the video is?

    Hi Lourokk !
    Well-come to the world of BB
    Do check the format of videos and if you using old MMC, then u need to tranfer the data in to BB folder of your MMC.
    Any other problem, feel free to ask

    Are you trying to view streaming video through a website?

    No, you're fine. 8830 doesn't do video streaming through Youtube or other sites like that.

    You have to download the video to the phone and convert it to a format that the media player can display.

    No, it won't do streaming video. Must be converted and uploaded.
