I assume you have a data plan. Make sure that the default browser in the BB browser options is set to Internet. Also what is the OS version installed on your Berry?

You need to download from your PC and then MOVE the video over to your media card.

Default t.v./video on blackberry

Clearly I'm new here because I wasn't able to find out how to respond individualy. Anyway, thanks to those who responded to me. If you or anyone could enlighten me on how to use this forum properly I would appreciate it. In response to Raja_3012, yes I do have a data plan in fact, unlimited.Yes my browser is on and my operating system is 4.3. As for you Akosnitzky, the only other source for t.v. And or video(that I know of) is blueapple.mobi. They have a new name now. I think it's called vuclip or something like that. If you go to blueapple.mobi you will still get there.

If you have a big enough media card, download the latest version of Opera Mini and use Opera Mini to download the videos striaght to your Media Card, that's what I've been doing.

To download threw Opera Mini it should be very similiar to using the a desktop browser. Let me know how it works out.

Thank you Jonzzee for the info.

SteveO,
I never thought of that use for Opera Mini. I am assuming you are referring to 4.2

You can download them in Opera Mini using 4.2 or 4.1 I've been having a few issues with 4.2 connecting.

The less you have to use my PC the better. Lol

Default t.v./video on blackberry

No problem akosnitzky. If I come across any others I'll let you know if you want. Thanks SteveO for the tip. I'm going to try it. My o/s is 4.3 and hope this doesn't inhibit anything. The video4blackberry site is supposed to be blackberry friendly. Is there any way to respond to people individually?

A lot of people use Opera Mini it is just another program to download doesn't effect any warranty or anything. I just use it for the download feature and for the occasionial page that the BlackBerry browser won't display correctly.

It can always be removed, go ahead and google it, its got a desktop version that can synch your favorites from desktop to BlackBerry. Its pretty nifty.

Yeah, just Google Opera Mini from your BB Browser and it will come up with the homepage.

I use Opera Mini all the time because the BB Browser leaves little to be desired IMO. Good Luck,

El_flyingpig.I'm assuming you are using opera mini to watch videos yes? Is it worth it in your opinion? I mean is the picture good quality or is it choppy or delayed? Somewhat "virginal" here lol

The video was good quality. The download will eat up your battery, so you may want to be plugged in through the process
