Default What video format does 9700 play?

Please Login to Remove!

Can it play avi and mp4? If not is there a third party software that will allow me to do this? Is there a fact sheet on the 9700 that covers these types of questions? tx PL

I didn't use anything to convert it. These are files of TV shows that I "found" on the internet. When using my iPhone or iPod Touch, I had to use a converter to put them in MP4 format to play them and each conversion would take about as long as the show itself. But the BB9700 plays the DivX/XviD codec in AVI format, which means I just drag and drop. It's great!!

Not to hijack the thread, but I have noticed that some users indicate YouTube videos will not play on their 9700. I tried playing some YouTube vids right out of the box without any setting tweaking, and they've all played pretty well. Sometimes the video would pixellate a bit, but by and large they played beautifully.

I would be curious to know if anyone else is also having success with YouTube, or if there is something I am missing.
