Default Some videos only playing the audio portion

Please Login to Remove!

I converted a video to mp4 format and for some reason when I play it on my Blackberry the audio plays but not the video (though it is listed under Videos since it's an mp4). Any ideas why this is? I have another mp4 that does play properly. Would another video format be better? How can I get both audio and video to play?

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: Never mind, I fixed the problem I upgraded my Desktop Manager to 4.6 and used the Media Manager that comes with that to convert and transfer the video and it works fine now (I had previously used a different program to convert the file; In the future I'll just use the one in the Desktop Manager).

It is not the conversion that went wrong but the bit rate. Bold can't play files with bit rates higher than 1500 kbps. The same thing happened to me also.

What I can't fix is that some MP4 videos would play fine but the sound does not play in sync with the video.
