    Thumbs up Blackberry Pearl Video Converter - Free

    Advertisement



    I LOVE my new Pearl and have been absolutely ticked off that it DOES NOT recognize video formats as stated on the Blackberry web-site; however, I found this FREE video converter and it has worked flawlessly and relatively quickly. Two things to note: 1. Do not change the name of the file that it creates or it may not work correctly and 2. the DVD converter function does not work. Sooooooooooooo, if you have existing videos on your computer that you want to convert, this is a great FREE tool. If you have DVD ripping software - use that to rip the movie and then use this to convert the video.

    Go to snapfiles dot com and look up "blackberry video converter" in the search function (stack won't let me post the URL because apparently I'm not "senior" enough - my only credibility is that I am a totally frustrated Pearl user who was ready to throw my phone through a window at RIM if I could).

    This software converts it to a .avi file with all of the correct codecs, blah, blah, blah...and sound is always synched (and in stereo if appropriate).

    Good thing I found this, otherwise I was taking the phone back. On a final note, I would encourage all of my fellow Pearl owners to flood RIM with emails, phone calls, letters, etc. complaining that we want a software update for our phones that RECOGNIZES all of the video formats that RIM claims the Pearl does. We should just be able to drag and drop and not go through these extra steps because RIM screwed up the software and made false claims!

    (what can i say...saturdays are my sabbath day if ya know what i mean)

    any who, it takes like four button presses with this app and alakazaam.
    instant video sized perfect for the pearl to handle.

    no need to fuss with uber confusing settings and so forth.
    i downloaded the app and within five minutes i had already taken a
    full size music video, compressed and fit on my pearl great to test.

    mad props once again to baconismidog
    lets all let him know how much this rocks.

    I've been using it for a while now, and with the be OS is not as good but I don't really watch that many videos on my pearl. Have the doors movie that I'm yet to watch but is as easy as it gets.

    Okay I dont know how to work this. the text stops in the black window I press okay and it says I am cancelling it prematurely. It says something like c:\> and the path and then the > again. What do I do there?
