    Hi, I've had a quick look through the forums and cannot see any specific answer to this.

    I've just purchased my first BB device, a 32Gb playbook. It's quite an impressive piece of kit but after transferring across a couple of avi files I cannot get any sound. A bit of googling leads me to believe that this is probably because the PB does not play ac3. I realise I can convert but don't want to do this for my whole film collection. Will the new OS 2 work with ac3?

    Many thanks

    From what I've read about the beta, the support still is not there.

    I've got a few videos from a digital camera that are the opposite - they play the sound but the pb will not show the video.

    But so far there is no indication that that Dolby (I think) standard will be supported. I don't know if anyone has added that support to a 3rd party Android app that will work under OS2.
