Default Blackberry Video Viewing in ASP

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,
I was wondering if anyone knew what video format the Blackberry 9000 works on. I was testing the Blackberry 9000-Vodafone simulator provided by Blackberry to play a video using a simple piece of code in classic ASP: <a href="test.mov">Play</a> , the test.mov is on the same directory. I'm pretty sure that the Blackberry 9000 can play mov files which is pretty much the same thing as a mpg-4. Does anyone know why it's not showing. Oh by the way I get a "HTTP Error 413: Request Entity Too Large. The page you requested could not be loaded" error message. The file itself is only 3.52 MB, so I don't think it's because its too large.
Thanks, I appreciate any assistance given!

From the Rim knowledge base:

"The size of files that can be downloaded to the BlackBerry smartphone using the BlackBerry® Mobile Data System (BlackBerry MDS) is limited due to storage availability on the BlackBerry smartphone and the cost of transferring data wirelessly. The default file size limit is 500KB (512000 Bytes), while the limit for most multimedia files is set at 5000KB (5120000 Bytes). "

Thanks for the response so.. correct me if I am wrong but does that mean if I download something to the blackberry itself the limit is 5 MB but if I want to view something online or stream something, i.e. watch youtube.com videos or even watch a video online from a website on the blackberry, the limit is approximately 0.5 MB?
