    Pearls can't stream video from the internet - no matter what the OS. They aren't capable of it. If I'm wrong PLEASE let me know imeefiately. I've got a pearl that I'd love to use for streanimg videocasts.

    We're talking about command prompting the .cod (video record) file onto the pearl enabling video recording, but in HORRIBLE quality..there was a thread a while back showing us how to

    You can if you're using OS 4.5 or higher, I stream video on my pearl all of the time.

    No, the camera on the 8100 just isn't capable of it.

    jblackfish, you can stream from mobile youtube on the pearl running 4.5 but that is about it

    and tattoo82 it's not worth the hassle putting video record on the 8100, if you can get a 8120 pearl, or a curve and update it to 4.5 official software you'll be cool

    Ok that video puts things into prospective. Not very good... ooor maybe How bout can someone find a way to at least make it record in black and white? I think that would be cool.

    I mistakenly thought Tattoo was asking about streaming video (utube, podcasts, etc) and he was evidently asking about a (camera) recorder for the Pearl.

    Jog3145 provided a good example of the video (bad) quality which, as an artist, is interesting but as a recording is very poor quality - thanks jog. Did you download that from myspace or is that a recording you made and put out there?

    Yeah, for actual "Video", the hack is useless, but it works VERY well as a flashlight, it uses the camera flash and it's very bright, and very useful, I use it almost every night.

    I made that little video. I have to agree with beeshabo, while in the video recorder you can just hit the space key and you have a flashlight press it again and it turns off.

    2 thoughts come to mind...
    1- a flash light app that works on the older OS too so u don't have to D/L the vid recorder
    2- maybe some patience and hope for a newer OS for better quality recordings with an app that will work on the 8100s
