I'm sure one of the experts will chime in, but I think the answer is you don't. You'll need to get a different phone to view video sites.

Correct. BlackBerries don't natively display flash at this time.

Wirelessly posted (BlackBerry 8700g: BlackBerry8320/4.2.2 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/100)

There may be a third-party program. I don't believe they can do streaming video, and they don't have removable storage. I would guess no, but again there may be a third-party solution.

It's possible to watch videos, you can save real videos into your media folder and play them with a media player.

You cannot watch flash videos, as they are not real "videos", but rather full animated flash applications, and blackberries don't do flash. It's on the to-do list for the opera mini team, so maybe the next full opera mini version will have it.

So the short version is: you can't go to youtube or google video on your blackberry. You can TRY to go to sites that translate youtube videos into more readable file formats, but that's sort of annoying.

You could get an iPhone or something like that, but I'm assuming you want to get work done on your mobile device, so that might not be the best bet.

My advice is to stick with regular text and graphics sites and wait for opera to release flash support.

Video is not supported on the 8700 series.
