Default Play web video on BB 7290?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I have a BB 7290. I'm still somewhat new to using a Blackberry. My Blackberry is connected through a Blackberry server with my company. Browsing the web and retrieving email goes a whole lot faster than the Cingular server connection.

I was wondering why I cannot play play a web video... for example... the video clips on MSNBC. I could use some guideance and appreciate your advice.

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Blackberries aren't designed to play streaming media. You won't be able to do that with any blackberries. Maybe things will change down the road with the next gen blackberries but as for now it's a no go.

LRG Welcome....

Rule of thumb.. if you don't see a piece of software on the main screen that will do it.. it likely can't happen. Examples...

1. MP3 player
2. Camera
3. play/record video
4. Etc

What you can do... Examples (in order of the screen default)
1. Read Email
2. Phone
3. Calendar
4. WAP
5. etc

My advice.. play around with it.. constantly.. click all the icons and see how it works. You will not learn it unless you do that.

Good luck and again.. welcome!
