| | Changing Video File Format from 3GP to MP4
Please Login to Remove!
I have a new Plasma TV (Panasonic Viera) that has an SD Card slot on the side. I have an SD card in my 9900 and I want to be able to watch videos taken with my 9900 on my TV.
Per the instruction manual, the TV only supports the following video file formats:
AVCHD Standard Compatible Files
MPEG-2 PS files
MPEG-2 TS files
But when I record a video on the 9900 and take the SD Card out and stick it in my TV, no files show up for viewing.
When I use BBerry Desktop Manager, I can transfer the files and watch them on my computer. They're saved with the extension .3GP
The question I have is is there anyway to change the settings on my BBerry so that it saves the files as one of the file formats above? That way, all I have to do is take the SD Card out of the 9900, stick it in the TV and I'm good to go. Otherwise I think I have to transfer the files to the computer, convert them to one of the file formats above, transfer them to a USB stick and then stick the USB stick into the TV. It's a lot more work and not worth the effort - I might as well just watch them on the computer.
Any help on the above would be greatly appreciated.
