    NEW! Videos will now download OTA! (CNN/ABCNews Confirmed)

    Advertisement



    UPDATE:
    More sites found that allow downloading of videos OTA. Post has been started listing those sites:
    http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...lackberry.html

    Someone else with a MicroSD and an 81/88/83 series please confirm this, as I am able to do it on all of the above devices as long as they have a microsd card.

    Go to www.cnn.com via your BlackBerry.

    Go down to the videos.

    Click on one you want to watch.

    On the next page, click on "download video".

    It will pop up asking if you want to open, save or cancel.

    Click on Open or save and it will start to download and then play in your media player once it finishes.

    Pictures Below...

    ABC NEWS:












    CNN.COM:













    So check your favorite site to get news/music videos/shorts/etc from...And if it works, post 'em here!

    Those who get it to work, please post the device type.

    We may need to list the OS's too if people start getting entries too large.

    Evil, do you have a media card?

    I just tried the APEC security breach video on cnn and it worked. I did not get a popup asking if I want to save the video. It just started playing after the download was complete.
