Question on supported video on Pearl 8130...
 
Below is from the closed "Media Types" thread stickied at the top of this forum.

Regarding the video section, below...I'm not very up-to-speed on codecs, etc.

To "translate" the info below to consumer-speak, does it basically mean that most MPG, AVI, and DIVX videos should play on the Pearl? Or is the H.263 requirement mean that few of the videos floating around (i.e., your co-worker emails you a funny video) won't play, 'cause the BB is looking for a specific type of encoding that isn't very common?

I've done some googling on this, but didn't find anything that really cleared this up for me.

Thanks.

Also...I sent an email to myself w/an AVI video in it. On the Pearl, when I open the email, there is no option to view/open or save the attachment. Why is that? I can understand maybe that the Pearl can't view/play the video, but why can't I save it to the media card?

I've had the best luck with .mp4 coded with Roxio or some other video recoding programs. Mostly works using the ipod video convertors too just pick screen sizes in the 250 x 250 pixel RANGE so they play full screen (on my Pearl) I wasn't able to get any .avi's or .mpg's to play at all.
