    Greetings,

    Re: BlackBerry Bridge updated with bug fixes for issues encountered by some users | CrackBerry.com

    Installed the new Bridge update and left a comment:

    ===========
    Hmm, after updating [Bridge] (and restarting the Z10 to be sure) my media card is indeed accessible from the PlayBook. But a directory with PB-compatible movie files is listed as "There are no files that can be opened by PlayBook".

    So something is still wrong... No 10.2.1 yet (T-Mobile) so that's a possibility but I wonder if it's something else...
    ===========

    As a test, I moved an mp4 that is on my Z10 to the playbook itself. The Z10 plays the file; the Playbook plays the file. But when accessing the directory containing the Z10 clone via Bridge on the PB I get the dreaded, "There are no files that can be opened by PlayBook".

    The person I replied to did not seem to be having this problem. Is it *definitely* a pre-10.2.1 issue? Any thoughts or suggestions?

    Thanks!

    You can view some media on the PB over bridge (music, photos) but you cannot view videos (at least that is my understanding). I'm on 10.2.1.1925 and it doesn't work. I believe BT does not have sufficient bandwidth to allow video streaming from the phone to the PB. Does not work over wi-fi either (which I think would be a relatively easy fix for BB - make the PB a wi-fi direct reciever of sorts?).

    Thanks KDB84. That makes perfect sense, given the limitations of bluetooth. What gave me pause is this statement of @thatplaybookguy at the same link:

    "since this update you can push ALL media to your playbook. I was fooling around with it last night after the bridge update. I pushed full length movies, pics, music and it worked flawlessly. Also pushed emails, texts, bbm to it as well. All through bluetooth without a hitch."

    I could not get this to work. So apparently thatplaybookguy is mistaken about "full length movies" being pushed to the playbook with the new bridge...

    Thanks!
