Default Blackberry video capabilities?

Please Login to Remove!

Is there a way to view streaming video on the newer model BlackBeries? I haven't seen much on this topic but would love some information. I just got a 7100t and will be searching for sometime. I will post again if i find anything.......

Generally, BlackBerries are not capable of video. Although I was able to play .jam files (.jar files that play a java-powered movie) at relatively low framerates.

Theoretically, it might be possible now (on newer BlackBerries anyway) to write a streaming utility, but the performance of the BlackBerry will definitely be the limiting factor.
