I use to run the beta and could play tinytube videos...now it says my media player unsupported. Does anyone know a site to download videos from blackberry browser which supports new media player?

There's no video support on the 8700 media centre. This has been discussed in the 4.2.1 thread.

Besides having no software video support there is an issue of it being allowed by the carrier. Those unlimited data plans. In fact have data usage limits, and I am betting it would not be hard to go though them watching video.

Those plans also usually specify what things you are and are not allowed to do. I know Cingular and Verizon both do not allow streaming video on their networks unless it is from their content service.

I think you can use tinytube and such using 8100 and 8800. I love new os but it was nice to watch tinytube vids on the go...if anyone has a idea how to put beta media player on new os pm me..
