    I'm glad to see that people are having success getting movies on their BB. I have gone through every ripper I could find, and a number will give me .3gp files with a 320*240 resolution for a 8320 Curve. But when I try to play them, after a second or so, it says "load error."

    I've also noticed that if I play them on my PC with a 3gp player, they will not play with mplayer, but play with no problems using ffplay. Any suggestions? Anything I can do or stop doing to get the movies on my BB?

    Thanks.

    You could try this method and create MP4 files:

    Convert for Optimal Playback without BB

    It's focused on Verizon devices, but I don't see any reason why it shouldn't play on yours as well. If you want a little higher quality file, I would set it to 2 pass and 800 bitrate. If you want decent quality and a quicker encode, just follow the instructions as they are.

    On my 8120, I can play CNN videos, but some of the videos do not play sound. I have narrowed this down (potentially) to a file size problem, but I don't get any error messages. Is it possible that some CNN videos don't play sound due to file size and, if so, how can I be sure?

    i have to go through 3 steps to get videos on my BOLD.

    1. Use ImTOO DVD ripper
    2. Convert the video to MPEG by using a converter called "Any Video Converter"
    3. import my videos to Media Studio for Blackberries


    the media studio for blackberries is great, i was able to convert a 2.5GB movie (Lord of The Rings) into about 455MB and it looks great on BOLD. I use a 16GB micro SD and i have like 13 movies and i still about 9 GB of free space that space we be for music.

    No Hulu, it requires flash which is not available for the BB yet.

    Yet hopefully being the operative word. Fingers crossed.

    As for movies, if you're a newb and want to download movies for your BB...go to ZML.com. You can download them in IPOD format, which also happens to work just fine on BB. Brand new movies cost about $1.99 each in the MP4 format. I downloaded 3 today, tested them and they work great on my storm. Going to watch them tonight during work. ZML requires no converting, and no media manager. Just enable mass media mode and copy them into your phone's memory or preferably memory card.

    Is the 320x240 resolution mandatory on all BBs?
    I'm a first time BB owner with a Sprint Tour, and I know that its screen is 480x360.
    I was just wondering if the optimal resoultion for videos has changed.

    Its a great guide! Thanks!
