    Advertisement



    I've tried to view several videos sent to me via email. I'm able to download them on my pearl but it always says error open file. Do I need to download quicktime to my phone. If not, what do I need to do. Thanks.

    Wherever the file is saved, look at the properties. The file name would end with .wmv, or .avi etc.........

    The media player on the BB is a bit picky about video files. I've had the best luck with .mp4 and .3gp. I have some .avi files that work and others that play but have no sound. Most .wmv email attachments I tried didn't work, would play for a few seconds then stop and say error, unsupported format. With some file extensions, they are listed as compatable but sometimes there are limits like .wmv 9 Simple Profile Decoder. Here's a link to RIM's site with a list of supported media formats.
