    Question Watching wmv on BB8800

    Advertisement



    So I was trying to watch a preview of a movie on my BB8800 and it says that I cannot play the file. Is there any type of program that allows me to watch it straight from the BB? Please let me know

    The video file needs to be in the correct format and it needs to use a supported codec. Check the support section of Blackberry.com for details. There's a tech support article that details what formats and codecs are supported by the BB media player.

    I encode every one of my movies using Super (http://www.erightsoft.com/SUPER.html) and they work perfectly every time. Only take a few minutes and it greatly reduces the video size for my microcard. I transfer the movies over using the device manager.
