Default Google video on Curve requires conversion?

Please Login to Remove!

Hello.

There is a download option for videos on video.google.com for "Download for Video IPod/Sony PSP". The videos are: 320x240 24bpp 30fps H.264 / AVC with stereo MPEG-4 AAC 44Khz audio.

It's nice that the dimensions are the same as the resolution for the Curve, but these videos don't play on a Curve (black screen with only audio).

What part of the codecs making up the video don't work on a Curve?

I was hoping not having to convert these videos using mencoder.

Thanks.

You can find more info on the supported video formats here

What video and audio formats are supported?? - BlackBerryFAQ.com

Edit: apparently MPEG-4 Part 10 (H.264 / AVC) is not supported, so I guess you are gonna have to convert them if you want to watch them.
