    opera mini question

    Advertisement



    I just downloaded opera mini 4. and I like it but for some reason it will not play a youtube video. I have no problem streaming youtube with the stock browser. Is this something opera mini cannot do or can I just change some kind of setting?

    Opera Mini does not support Adobe's Flash Video (.flv) - the format used by YouTube.

    Well unless you're using BlackBerry OS 4.5, I don't see how this is possible - the default BlackBerry Internet browser doesn't support Flash Video either (I've heard unconfirmed rumors that BlackBerry OS 4.3 also supports Flash Video...)!


    Check out blueapple.mobi ( http://www.blueapple.mobi ) and mywaves ( http://www.mywaves.com/m ) - they allow you to search the most popular video-sharing sites, and then convert the videos into a downloadable format that is supported by the default media player on a BlackBerry...

    Thanks for answering my question cybacowboy ! But is is possible to stream youtube video right out of the box with the stock browser. And what is even more crazy is I am on US Cellular. Which has 1x data. I did not think I would be able to stream anything, but strangly enough it does work. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
