    Does anyone know if RIM is looking to introduce support for AC3 or OGG codecs in 2.0 final? It's beyond frustrating having video play fine but no audio.

    Any help/insight would be greatly appreciated.

    Hey, a new, award winning movie is silent - consider the pb ahead of the game!

    I think I've read they'd need to license the ac3 from, is it, Dolby.

    I doubt anyone outside of RIM knows. What are those codecs used for? So far, anytime I could get a video to play, it had sound...

    AC3 is the audio codec used for Dolby Digital Surround Sound. It's pretty standard in 1080p video.

    This is my understanding too, I haven't heard anything about adding support for it yet either.
