PB and Ultraviolet Movies?
Was wondering if any of you peeps with a PB have used the new Ultraviolet format on your PB and if so how was the streaming on it.
Now that I have my PB I will update this thread.
No, it will not play the videos. The PB can log in, it can also go as far as the "buffering" but then I get Java error. I keep refreshing etc and so far no go. Oh well if something comes up I will update you guys as I do check on it at least once a day. Yeah I am that persistently annoying

I tried to download from flixter and it doesn't work. Something about the browser can't support it. I tried first from the ultraviolet Site and they told me that the download doesn't work yet. What the **** is that all about? Either way I'm annoyed because I intentionally got the uv movies so I could have them on my PB.

Re: PB and Ultraviolet Movies?
flash isn't required that much anymore... and while not perfect it seems to get the job done on the sites I've tried it.
I think the fact that iOS has such a large presence online, has force most sites to adapt to the their lack of flash support.
not saying it will work just that I've found it useful to have "several" browsers on my PlayBook. if I rin into a problem on a site, usually one of them will work.

Hi Newbie here,
Just bought my little girl a PB for xmas with the intention of using UV/Flixster but found that i could only watch streamed films from the website and not download the Film to my PB,when i try and download the Flixster APP.it says "This Item is not supported by your current profile" what does this mean?
Thanks in advance for your answers.

Unfortunately it ( the Playbook ) can't handle streaming UV licensed media via Flixter. I spent several hours and my record has been slightly under 15 minutes before it hangs or the fatal error burps up the multi colored lines.A reluctant iPhone 4s user who would STILL be a Blackberry user had RIM not messed it's own bed by putting a "Fisher Price Camera" in it's "flagship" Blackberry Bold 9930.
