Default Video Streaming

Please Login to Remove!

Is there anyway to watch videos on youtube, and other video websites, I get to the website fine, and then it says my handheld is unable to support and etc... I've done some reading, is there no way around this excluding the converting factor, which I don't see the point of downloading a video and THEN watching it, any way I can get the video to just stream right away? Help!

Most are able to do so once they upgrade their handheld OS to version 4.5

JSanders, so most 8310 users can watch youtube videos once they upgrade?? I thought only 8330 and Bold users had this capability.

Are there any 8310 users out there who can successfuly log on to youtube.mobile and watch vidoes in real time?

Okay, I'm going to desk my BB in a few minutes. Will post results.

I know I couldn't do it with the earlier upgrade. But I just upgraded to .81 lastnight so we will see.

I couldn't watch any of the youtube vids. My media player opens as if it's about to play it then nothing happens.

Is there a way around this? Is this a settings issue?

If someone could shed some light on this I would be grateful.

8310 - BIS - .81.

There is a way to watch clips on your blackberry curve 8330 (Youtube Videos) a site called w.vuclip.com/

Just go there on your BB and select the Im a mobile link, and you will have a search box and some other options for downloading videos. Not exactly streaming, but still a nice site w/o any installs.

If you have OS 4.5 and go to m.youtube.com you should be able to watch videos on youtube. Try a battery pull.
