Default video player with codec

Please Login to Remove!

i am trying to watch some videos on my blackberry curve 8320 and i comes up as an error to play saying "an error has occurred attempting to play media". So, i am assuming that i need a codec and/or a different player? where can i download it?

You need to make sure it is formatted correctly. Look at this:

Nope -- the video needs to be encoded using a supported codec.

You could try copying the video to your PC with Desktop Manager and using Roxio to convert it to the correct format. That worked great for me.

Thanks so much for the easy instructions. I just sat here for an hour or more trying every other suggestion, SUPER, Blackberry video converter, etc etc and this was the simplest and quickest method. I always try to make things hard on myself when I don't need to. THANKS!!!!
