Default xvid video causes reboot?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey all,

This happened to me last night, wanted to know if it was a known issue. Here are the conditions:
- BB 8320 running 4.2.2.180
- Xvid video is 320x180 @ 30fps - 520kbps - viewing in full screen mode
- Xvid was from an outside source (not converted by Roxio BB software)

Watching the video was slightly glitchy, but was watchable. About 5-7 mins into the video though the Blackberry rebooted on its own. Anyone have this happen? Has .184 been any better for fixing this?

Thanks in advance.

I would look more at Xvid support versus an issue with the BlackBerry OS

I just loaded the original source file in its original format onto the microSD card, I didn't use any software to convert it into a BB friendly formate. Looked fine with the 320x180, but I was wondering if the 520kbps data rate was too much for the BB to handle and caused it to reboot.

I have tried to play videos at 30 FPS using the proper .AVI H.263 format, and it crashes. When I switch to 14.9 FPS (or whatever it is), the videos are fine. I don't think the phone's processor can handle more than 14 or 15 FPS and that may be why it crashes.

320x180 is for widescreen. My Live Free or Die Hard video, which is super widescreen, is at 320x138 which is the original scale. If you try to change this, the video will be squished.

Thanks for the info. Have you tried and/or had any success with the 24fps presets in the Roxio Media Manager?
