Default Downloading video to Storm

Please Login to Remove!

What program do you guys use to download video clips to Blackberry? My experience with PocketMac Sync has been great for calendar/task/contact syncing but it doesn't appear to allow what I need for video downloads. My searches reveal several conversion programs but I still can't figure out how to actually get the files onto my Blackberry once the conversion takes place.

This is all new to me; I just moved to Blackberry after being a PDA guy for too long. Thanks for your helpl

Hey Ron,

so far I have not come across any app, but you can transfer manually for now. Saw this artiicle. Hope it helps for you.

Enable media card support on the BlackBerry smartphone
From the Home screen of the BlackBerry smartphone, click Options > Media Card.
Set the following options:
Media Card Support - On
Mass Storage Mode Support - On
Auto Enable Mass Storage Mode When Connected - Yes or Prompt

Note: If Prompt is selected, the BlackBerry smartphone will display Do you want to turn on Mass Storage Mode? You might not be able to access some media files in this mode when the BlackBerry smartphone is connected to the Macintosh computer. Select Yes in order to turn on Mass Storage Mode.

To transfer files between the media card and the Macintosh computer
Connect the BlackBerry smartphone to the Macintosh computer. A storage drive icon appears on the screen of the computer.

Open the storage drive icon to display the contents of the media card.
Drag and drop or copy and paste the files between the Macintosh computer and the media card.

Note: When transferring files to the media card, please make sure the files are transferred to the appropriate directory (for example, music media files should be transferred into the Music directory on the media card).

That may or not work. If the video in not properly formatted for the BB screen size, it won't work. With Windows you have to use the Roxio program to format video for the BB. It's just another reason why RIM is very behind the times when it comes to this whole smart phone thing. They want to compete with the iphone, yet they offer really no solution for Mac users.
