    Compatible Content from Audible and Itunes?

    Advertisement



    I was on Audible site, but hey did not list the RIM devices. I thought from years ago their content was in mp3 format, but that was a while ago.
    In addition what content on Itunes is compatible with the 8130? Audio and video. Havent downloaded the Itunes software yet.
    Thanks

    i dont use either - but i dont think anything on itunes will work on a bb out of the box so to speak.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    Not if they're DRM tracks. There's a way to strip that but I can't talk about it. use google

    Itunes is designed to be compatible with Ipod. You cannot purchase music/video from there and have it work on your blackberry. If you read through the Multimedia forum, you will find lots of ideas/instructions on getting music and video on your Pearl.

    Good luck!

    thanks all. Ive been converting form dtm and using prior mp4 files to the bb ok. I swear when I first opened media manager there was a gp3(or whatever) conversion choice, but I cant find it anymore for some reason.

    Audible is in the processing of developing their audibleair app for the 8130 Pearl. I've had good luck with the beta versions I've tried so far in side-transferring books from my PC onto my media card via Roxio MM (slowly...). The player is coming along. I've also had luck with OTA downloads of the most recent issues of my subscriptions when I'm in a location with a strong signal (which is, unfortunately, not at home), but haven't been away from home long enough to test the OTA DLs for books from my online audible library. Couldn't predict when it may be ready for prime time, but it's just lovely that audible is working so hard on making this available. Even if the problems with OTA book downloads over VZW are never solved, I'd still be a happy camper just being able to use the player on my 8130 and continuing to use MM to transfer books from my PC to the BB. The player requires the books to be audible's highest quality format (4), which is what I used for my iPods anyway.

    I'm able to play my purchased iTunes music via the mediaplayer on my BB 8130 without conversion or having to strip the DRM. I've also side-transferred those via MM to my media card.

    Stuka, I lied. I can't play m4p files on the 8130. m4a, yes, but not m4p's.
