    Question multimedia help

    Advertisement



    ok so this is a manifold question:

    what are the default file extensions that the blackberry curve 8300 player uses? is it only .midi and .mp3? is there any kind of player for the blackberry curve 8300 that will also allow one to play mpeg and .wav formats as well? Or do i have to convert them all to .midi and .mp3?

    Also, is there a name for this default player that the blackberry comes with? Like "windows media player" for microsoft?

    thanks again guys
