    8820 Video Playback

    Advertisement



    Hi Guys,

    I'm new to the world of Blackberry's. Got my 8820 yesterday =) I've tried saving MPEG videos from websites and tried opening them, but nothing plays (just loads the player). I've heard people saying avi is the way to go but I'd much rather not have to convert files. Is there some sort of media player that can be downloaded onto the blackberry to support these file types? Where is our flash player damnit! Haha.

    Sorry for any newbie questions and thanks/

    Personally, no. We'll see if anyone else has some input.

    I haven't found any other way than to just convert them. I have tons of plain old mpegs that I thought I could just put on the microsd card & they would play. But they don't. Just the player loads up. I have 5 seasons of Curb Your Enthusiasm that I converted to mp4 & they play perfectly.

    Yea the converting part works, I guess the dimensions of the video have to be a certain size? A new player with more support would be great. I wish you could just save videos from the net then just watch them..
