    Hi All

    I can't get stuff like youtube to play on my 8100. I either get a message about unsupported media or a request to download Flash.

    I feel uncomfortable about downloading videos - not sure about the security on the device? I'd rather play embedded or hosted stuff.

    Any thoughts/hints/ideas/advice?

    Thanks.

    Lol. Thought so - it's a dog when it comes to being truly multimedia?

    Shame. The rest works pretty well.

    The pearl isn't set up to view videos off the internet yet, except for a very few sites, and they don't play well on mine. They need to be downloaded (in the correct format) to the BB to play. Haven't gotten around to learning everthing there is about the Pearl Video yet but this much I do know.

    The same as if your screen is lit in my opinion, I believe it uses the same amount of power?

    Actually, it will use more because the radio is active while downloading. It will us the same amount as downloading any thing that contains the same amount of data.

    YouTube's video is FLV format. TinyTube seems to carry 3gp and they play fine.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Do you have to have a SD card to watch tinytube. I don't have a SD card yet but was able to download videos. The only problem is that they are not clear.
