    I think its:
    Size - 320×240 or 240×260 (Pearl)
    Audio - AAC or mp3
    Video - mp4
    Container - 3GP

    These might help.

    I used this method and it worked great! I actually just put a few movies on my Storm tonight. They looked and played awesome.

    Just follow the instructions from the link. Once the movie is converted and saved in a folder, you will transfer it to your blackberry. Just connect your BB, and put the movie file in the video folder of your sd card.

    Good luck!


    PS: This worked on my Storm, im sure it will work on your bold

    I download the movies as normal, then sync my SD and drag the 700mb or so file to the video folder. Works perfectly. Files are .AVI - 8900 - No resizing.

    Thats because the 8900 can do divx and xvid and of course mp3 audio. Also the Bold somewhat support those not quite as good as the 8900.

    Ok, so I tried the handbrake method, it worked and it didn't. It saved to my sd but when I play it the video is choppy, there are some clear picture squares and there are some that are fuzzy/snow squares. I don't know a whole lot about this as far as bitrate and framerate and how they affect the picture. Any suggestions about what is going on?

    I followed the instructions exactly how they were written....and it worked on mine. Wide screen movie settings may need to be tweaked a bit to use a little more screen, full screen movies look great! Maybe you missed a step, read the steps carefully (there are a bunch of settings and each is important!)

    I wish I could be of more help


    Good luck!

    This is the link I used, I followed it. My version of handbrake doesn't have some of the option that it says. Like the crop, I don't have a "no crop" option. Dang, just thought of something, to all who have gotten to work what are you using as you format ,ie: psp, normal, xbox, tv.... I think this may be where my problem lies. Will check it out today.

    Do not use the presets in handbrake ie. xbox, psp etc! However, you can make a custom setting for blackberry, or you can manually enter the settings each time. I could not find the no crop setting my self, but there are crop settings. Set all of the crop boxes to "0".

    Hope this helps

    Blackberry video converter works perfect. Also imtoo video converter is a good one. They're both pretty straight forward, so really there's no need for instructions.

    I've been using the one that says "classic" it gives me the option to change the width/height. My settings are as follows: w/h-480x320, format-mp4 file,crop-auto: all boxes set to 0, I don't know what anamorphic means so I leave it alone at "none" I don't mess with the filters as I don't know anything about that either. On the "video" tab I have all the settings as it says in the link. Everything else is the same and it comes out choppy. Its almost like the framerate or something is not right.

    I'm going to google search this also to find the link to download. This is becoming frustrating, but will be worth it in the end as I will have movies and learned something along the way.
