Default How can I put a DVD movie on my Curve?

Please Login to Remove!

Okay, I've been out of the BB scene for a while now so I'm a little rusty so please have some patience with me.

So I want to be able to rip a couple DVD movies and load them on my 2GB memory card for my Curve but I don't have a clue as to:

1) Just exactly what program could I use to rip the movie(s)? Any links?

and

2) What file format would these movies be in? What are the video file format(s) that work on the Curve?

-Thanks for any suggestions.

I went to the videos4blackberry site and try to find a place to get movies. It seems it's mostly for tv show so far. I used lime wire to download a movie in the mp4 format and put in it into my itunes then on to my Curve. I looked on the FAQ site and it shows mp4 as a supported format. I tried and the movie won't play. Am I doing something wrong? Any help would be great.

Use the desktop manager (Roxio) to load the MP4 not itunes. Worked fine for me.

SearchGoogle for Blackberry Video Creator. You will find a couple of places to download it from, it is free. It works very well. It came out before the curve, so when the program ask you what device it givees you two choices 8100 and 8800 select the 8800. This gives you a bigger screen. Depending on the DVD it might be copy protected and you might need decrypting software for that. A full length movie takes between 200 and 250 mbs. I hope this helps. Good luck.

HI and Welcome. If no one has said to do a search yet, i'll have to do it first. but in any case, for the 8700, the only way to my knowledge to send jpegs is to just email it from your PC to your BB. As far as MP3's, no can do. your best bet is to find some ringtone sites if you want them as ringers, otherwise, the 8700 has no media player like the newer models does.

Smile I found a great easy program to rip dvds and put them on your curve

It is called "Media Studio for Blackberry" It is easy to use.

It is nice to see a company making software easy to use for a change. Most of the time, you have to jump through hoops to put videos on your phone.

Here the link. DVD and video to Blackberry - only two clicks needed

Enjoy.

I download full length MP4 movies for my 8310 Curve from limewire and then compress and reformat the movie using "youtube to ipod video converter". I have been doing this for almost 2 years now, even since I had my RAZR V3XX. I get complimented daily on how clear the movies I have turn out.

Just to clarify, Media Studio for Blackberry, is specically made to rip a commercial dvd to the supported blackberry format. It is a two click application. Then you use roxio to copy it over. You can get easier than that. I stay away from limewire. I have seen limewire destroy several computers. I do not think it is worth the risk.

Been using Limewire for several years now and NEVER had any problems whatsoever. Probably cause I know exactly what I am looking for as opposed to individuals that just randomly download the first thing they see. I also have excellent antivirus software which helps greatly. There are many other sources that I use to get movies, but Limewire just works for me. To each their own.

There is a great website that I stumbled across that all of you guys should be looking at every day. It is Giveaway of the Day - free licensed software daily. Today: Acoolsoft PPT2Video Converter - Acoolsoft PPT2Video Converter is an innovative tool helps you easily convert your PowerPoint to video. With only 3 steps, you ... This website has a new program to download every day that is free that day only. I have been checking this site out for a couple months now and have four different programs, that were free, that do what you guys are talking about. Some may do one thing different than an other, but they will let you turn ANY movie into a file that you can watch on your BB. There is no catch to the website either. You have 24 hours to download and install the program. I haven't got any extra spyware or bs like that from it either. Check it out. Good Luck.
