    have you tried mp4, see if that works! try going on this link, erase the existing url switch format to mp4, paste youtube url and convert, you will have to refresh the page. once the download option appears save target as whatever you want to name it to, then using DM transfer to device! if its too confusing let me know i'l walk ya through it. let us know how it goes! im not sure it wil work for the 88XX, but its worth a shot!

    if im doin movies on the 8830 i convert to one file with the bb video converter then upload to device thru desktop manager with the roxio media manager using advanced settings as mp4 under best settings and mp3 as audio, dont have to use best quality if a smaller file size is desired but i get crystal clear picture quality when i do, oh and in bb video converter make sure screen size is set to 320x240 otherwise picture will still be cropped down after running thru roxio

    mp4, avi, 3gp should all play but they need a particular coding. Not sure what the coding is though.

    i kno u need the ffmpeg codec to watch mp4 on comp not sure what it does writing or converting files though, ive never had any luck with avi on the 8830 though have had the 3gp play but had to use mp4 as the output codec and the 3gp jus as the container

    I'm using SuperC. Using Mp4 format and Mpeg4 as the container. Works pretty well on most things. I've done some full length movies and some south park episodes too.
