Default Video codecs on 8700

Please Login to Remove!

Can anyone offer any advice on how I might go about getting video working on my 8700 (which comes minus video player)?

Despite the lack of media card slot I would like to get 3gp video working on my 8700G.

By default the 8700 media app doesn't come with video support, however I can install Mobiola xPlayer. When I try to play a video I get an error I'm interpreting as codec not installed. I'm assuming xPlayer uses the standard BB video player codec, which is this case is omitted from the install.

Luckily I have identical version ( of both an 8100 OS and 8700 OS, which I've been using to try and identify an additional codec COD I can install on my 8700. (Hey, it might be optimistic, but you never know!)

I've compared the Java directory on the loader directories, results below.

Compare \8100-v4.5.0.55_P2.7.0.68\Java with \8700-v4.5.0.55_P2.7.0.68\Java

The files:

net_rim_bb_medialoader_100_five_icon_library.cod and

looked like possibilities, but I installed them with no affect.
