    Thumbs down 8830 Unsupported format

    Advertisement



    The ONLY video I have watched since I got my Blackberry is the "short logo clip" my 8830 came with.. I read that the 8830 will not play .avi files, but I am unable to watch ANY other formats ... DO I need to download a multimedia player ?? I have tried to save the clips on my sd card, with no luck playing.
    The closest I get while trying to play saved .wmv files is the error that says "An error has occurred trying to play media"...
    Co Workers laughing at me for getting a Blackberry.. Please help !

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~The 8830 will play .avi files as well as mp4, m4a, wmv, and 3gp video files. I have a few music videos (.avi) on mine. Haven't had a chance to put movies on yet. The media player installed is adequate to play those files. Now some sites gives bad vid downloads, where it might install to the card but won't play. Where did you download from?

    Try:

    To make your own videos that play on the 8830 (note:the 8830 is the critical element), go to

    Good luck.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ if you don't mind it being a bit slow, by far the easiest method to get videos onto your blackberry is to use the included roxio media manager. When you drag a video file onto your sd card it will ask if it should convert the file, say yes and the video will work like a charm.

    Whoops I gave you the wrong URL before.

    Its http://wwwmvideos4blackberry.info

    Sorry.

    I recommend this because Verizon crippled the video codecs in their 8830 so many of the standard blackberry video converters do not work for their 8830.

    I'm not sure who your carrier is but I prefer to use products that universally work. SeabyrdTech's blackberry video converter even has a disclaimer on their homepage (http://seabyrdtech.com/bbvideo) saying "Does NOT work for Verizon 8830 models..."
