Default Playing video from Curve on external screen

Please Login to Remove!

Probably a stupid question, but is there anyway to play a video that is stored on a curve on an external screen, as can be done with an IPod?

All the Xbox is doing is reading the BB's memory card and letting you access the files. It could also be done on your computer. There isn't a way to direct hook it to a TV or something.

There are mini usb tv out cables for example for htc touch pro or LG Viewty to connect with a tv. The one end is mini usb and the other 3 cables for audio and video.Do you think it would work with a curve?

No, they won't work.
The BlackBerry doesn't have this functionality.
Also, the USB port on the device is not a host controller and can't be used in that manner.

Thanks soupandsandwich, you saved me some $ since I was about to buy one of these. It would be nice if there was such functionality
