    What is the Attach Video menu item and video quick tips using Multimedia Message Service

    When composing a Multimedia Message Service (MMS) message, a new Attach Video menu item will be available. When selected, the Attach Video menu option launches a video selection screen to select from the non-Digital Rights Management (non-DRM) protected videos on the BlackBerry smartphone.
    General video quick tips
    • Video content can be deleted or moved between slides.
    • Video content can be previewed in a media window prior to sending.
    • Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL) layout rule is enforced to make sure that video content is not on the same slide as another image or audio content.
    • The BlackBerry smartphone is not able to convert video size or duration or format before sending; therefore, the video must be in a supported format before sending.
    • Non-Digital Rights Management (non-DRM) protected video messages can be forwarded as new messages.
    Received videos using MMS quick tips
    • When receiving an MMS message with video content the video content plays inline with the body of the MMS message.
    • Standard media player controls apply.
    • Slide timings are supported.
    • The BlackBerry smartphone user may save received videos to the media library.
    • Digital Rights Management (DRM) protected videos can be saved but used from the BlackBerry smartphone.
