    Question Blackberry Video Converter..also COMPRESS??

    I downloaded the Blackberry Video Converter by Seabyrd (I also see that the maker of this software is active on these and other Blackberry boards). My question is>>>does the software COMPRESS as well as convert?? that is, if I start with a 600mb movie file, will it come out the other end at, say, 150mb?? I ordered a 4G micro SD for my BB 8800 (which should arrive in a day or two) and want to put full length movies on it.

    On another note, does anyone know of any sites where I can download full-length movies to convert?? CinemaNow lets me rent and download, but the movies only play on RealPlayer, and cannot be transferred to BB. Seabyrd (baconismidog) has links on his page, but after downloading Night of the Living Dead, I was unable to play it

    Yes it will compress with the conversion, i dunno abt getting a 600MB file down to 150MB as it will look like p00 if you have that much compression but I guess that lies in the eyes of the beholder, I like my videos to look clean not like dirty youtube encodes, but thats neither here nor there, as for full movie downloads, I cannot commit to saying a place where you may legally download full length videos, I guess that falls under the category of what ones defines as legal as well, but if you want a personal suggestion on HIGH quality videos available for download and have the capability to be converted to blackberry compatible files check out stage6.com it's owned by DivX Networks..none of those lousy youtube encoded files ..DRM free as well.

    thanks for the quick reply. I had just logged off, then my berry went off with your reply. Yeah, I just provided the compression 600>>150 as an example. I will check out your suggested site now for movies. You are like me: I don't want those sketchy YouTube type videos either. They look like WebCam jobs...a broken WebCam operated with a bootleg battery!

    350 MB HD episodes of Heroes compressed to about 118 MB using BBVC. EXCELLENT quality, very little artifacting once I got the right settings.

    Do you have a link to this software?? Also, is it free, and most importantly, is the interface intuitive??? I am nogt savvy with converters so would like a very straightforward software. Mobile media forblackberry is a very simple a,b,c interface, but I am reluctant to pay 35 dollars.

    Follow like it says, the file is converting when it does that, as soon as the text stops close the window and browse to the file and transfer it to your BB,
    while it's def true this program is free I personally find it does not work that good and is def NOT user friendly.

    Siciliano>>>I have yet to use the Seabyrd tool myself. I downloaded it, but my 4G card is not expected to be delivered to me until Tuesday or Wednesday. Once I receive my MicroSD i'll give it a spin. Media Studio for Blackberry has a VERY user friendly interface, but costs $35 dollars. If I find that Seabyrd is too clunky, I'll use the Media Studio.

    I sent you a PM Siciliano, and now realize that the spelling is all jacked up (i didn't spell check). Sorry for that.

    yes I see the black command window and the TEXT never even writes anything or scrolls down. It just stays there blinking and i sit there waiting... how long does it usually take to convert?

    Well, a 350MB video took about 20 minutes to encode on a PIII 667Mhz with 512 MB RAM and WinXP. You probably have something much better than that, but it still takes some time to do all that crunching.

    For the love of all that is sane please help me. I've spent so many days trying to figure out why my Alltel Pearl 8130 won't play a single .avi vid that BBVC outputs. I've tried different settings, different sizes, clicked on all the buttons. I don't understand what I'm missing. I'm pretty savvy and this is just getting on my nerves. All of the vids from Bla1ze's site run perfect. I see that the Pearl can play .avi, but it just aint happening.

    I have compared different converters and I recommend MelodyCan.
    It converts music and movies, and also can remove drm protection. The converter is easy to install and use.
