Default Video on BB 8310

Please Login to Remove!

I've read on here that BB supports .avi video files. Is that the only type? I have a lot of mp4 videos that I want on my BB, so if it's only .avi, do any of you know a good .avi-to-mp4 converter?

I have an 8310, unlocked and used with Tmobile. I just updated to 4.5 and I can't stream video on it. Is this a related problem? A setting I need to change on my phone?

From where are you attempting to stream video? What site(s)?
