    Question 8100 making me crazy!! pls help!!

    Advertisement



    ok this is makin me nuts... all i wanted to do is watch some vidoes possibly a tv show or a movie. i have done all the tips, downloaded all the programs and now im gettin an error!

    Im getting soooooooo frusturated!

    i got opera mini.... have no idea what it is or what it does but it DOESNT play videos

    i got wap.pinstack........ i thought that would somehow let me play videos it DOESNT

    i got seabyrdtech.... DOESNT play videos

    i got 3pgtogo.... looks like it is gonna work, i think its gonna work. it says downloading... i think i finally got it.... DOESNT work!! error playing

    i got tinytube.... GOT AN ERROR.... UNCAUGHT EXCEPTION: java.lang.NullPointerException OK


    i looked up how to make the error stop ... it says do a wipe? i assume that means to clear everything off my bb, (does that include the phone numbers cause that took me 4ever!)... and besides ... u know what happens when u assume!

    i am completely lost when it comes to "techy" stuff, i dont speak the language

    all i want to do is get all these things i dont need off including the error (that is making my ?browser? not work) and get something on there that says ... "yes you can watch videos... here.. enjoy"

    it doesnt have to be that polite but it would be nices if it DOES work!

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    You smart ppl are gr8

    Charley, welcome to the Stacks.

    Your BB is not going to play video streams thru your Browser. Opera Mini or otherwise. You have to download vids to your PC, convert them to a format compatible with your Pearl, and then transfer them to your phone.

    The 3gtogo does work, I think, I'll try to dig up the thread that discusses it. I've never tried it so I don't have first hand exp. with it.

    Someone else will hopefully be along soon with more advice. Hang in there, we'll help you.

    Did you retry the 3pg method? I tested that vid before I posted it. It didn't work the 1st time but it did the 2nd. When you retry, back all the way out & repeat the process. This should work. Frustration will make it harder with any method so be patient.

    Do a batt pull to reboot your phone then repeat. Also try this if you have a pc around.
    you tube videos play on my pearl!

    This is what I use for all of my vids. I have about 40+ vids! Keep posting your results.

    Oh! Use BB browser only. For things like this anyway. Opera is for viewing web pages the BB browser can't. Its good to have, but its buggy. That's why you got the uncaught exception.

    I used to use tiny tube but the vids are poor quality! You should be able to get those anytime with your BB browser. I can get any vid on you tube with this method!

    you tube videos play on my pearl!

    The thread is in the multimedia section!

    Hey try 1 more time. Back all the way out & paste the URL again. Don't give up.
