    It does, but not in most popular formats, you'd need to convert them.

    Check out videos4blackberry.info for more info.

    Ya, we're talking about the same thing.

    That site collects TV shows (and a few movies) and converts them using the 3GPP converter so that the average user doesn't have to.

    BUT....the site also has a link to the converter so you can download it and convert your own vids.

    The Blackberry doesn't support things like avi's, so just transferring the files over to the blackberry isn't enough. You'll need to convert them using 3GPP and then send them over to the BB.

    Only because I didn't know any better, I converted two files using Blackberry Video Converter (free). This created .avi files which I moved without further conversion to my 8310 using the Desktop Manager. They both seem to play without a problem.

    One file was a DVD (Matrix) and the other was from YouTube.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Seabyrd Technologies - Blackberry Video Converter

    Just tell the program you have an 88XX.

    I have been using Amirsoft (or something like that) DVD to mp4 convertor and that works great. Good to have videos on my flights!

    Keep in mind that .avi is not a type of encoding but just a container for different types of video content. This may mean that some avi's work while others don't!
