Bluetooth File Transfer

I haven't been able to share files between my Style 9670 and PlayBook over Bluetooth, so I've been trying it over BlackBerry Bridge. Using Bridge on the PlayBook, I can view most file types, but when I go into File Manager and try to view videos on my phone, I get an error message saying "There are no files that can be opened by PlayBook". Apparently this means that Bluetooth doesn't support viewing (streaming) videos in real-time.

Is it possible to copy videos to my PlayBook, instead of streaming them?

Re: Bluetooth File Transfer
You should be able to stream and copy videos to your PB.

You can do this connected via USB or WiFi.

Re: Bluetooth File Transfer
The Knowledge Base article refers to wifi sharing and USB transfers (not Bluetooth). Also, I don't have a Style 9670 (not a BlackBerry 10 device).
