    Well, it's probably not going to work. BlackBerry only has RTSP streaming as of os 4.3. There are a few sites that do this, Youtube being the biggest. The rest are all youtube clones.

    You also need to edit your post and remove the site you typed. If you don't, I will report your post and have a mod remove it.

    No. It only reads certain encoding format profiles. It's a little complicated to understand if you aren't familiar with encoding video. But here is a list of supported video formats.

    * MPEG-4 Part 2 (Simple Profile and bvop, including DivX 4)
    o File formats - .avi, .3gp, .mp4, .mov
    o Video - Up to 320 x 240, up to 800 kbps, up to 30 frames per second
    * H.263 (Profile 0 & Profile 3)
    o File formats - .avi, .3gp, .mp4, .mov
    o Video - up to 320 x 240, up to 800 kbps, up to 30 frames per second
    * Windows Media Video (Simple Profile)
    o File formats - .wmv
    o Video - Up to 320 x 240, up to 800 kbps, up to 24 frames per second

    Note: Windows Media Video is supported in BlackBerry Device Software 4.2.1 and later.

    This list shows that MPEG-4 only supports MPEG-4 encoded by Part 2 (Simple Profile and bvop, including DivX 4). Any content that is in Flash, such as flash videos, will not work either. And thank you for removing the site from your post.

    do you know any App i can download on my BB to convert the file to supported file

    From the BB, no. Mobile phones don't have the processing power to convert video formats. You would need to download it to your PC, convert it on your PC, then load it onto your media card. There is information about what software to use in the video forum.
