Wink Do any kind of DIVX movies work?

Please Login to Remove!

Is there some version that allows it to work?
8310, 8800, and 8820 are of concern for me.

THANKS

XPlayer, made by ShapeServices
mediaPlayer, made by Dollars5
Both play DivX, I believe, and both apps work on any of those phones you listed. If not you can use the Roxio Media Manager that comes with DM and convert it to the phone.

(5:04AM) Give me a few and I can test them to be sure. Took me a bit to find some test vids.

BlackBerry: 8320
Confirmed with XPlayer 1.0.1
Confirmed with mediaPlayer 1.5.0.1517
Confirmed with BlackBerry Media Player from OS 4.2.2.180 (TMobile)
Full Screen: Yes

Clip was 1.72MB, 0:18, DivX 5.0.5 or later compliant. Heh, was the Big-O intro for season 1. Best I could find on short notice.

Not a problem. You have two options, either via the Download Manager PC application or Over-the-Air using the BlackBerry's Internet Browser.
So, you can use the links I provided before to download the version that you can install via DM or you can go to ShapeServices OTA or Dollars5 OTA.

Again, the same OTA links standalone. Just to make things easier, you can always browse the wap.blackberryforums.com rather than type each in.
ShapeServices: SHAPE Services
Dollars5: Dollars 5 Complete Install Links

Side Note: XPlayer by ShapeServices is free but mediaPlayer by Dollars5 is not free, but an older version comes bundled with multiPlayer Personal edition.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. I now fully understand why they recieved the nickname "CrackBerry".

Isn't there a free player, these each cost $20. Very steep!
Why wouldn't RIM allow its own player to play DIVX or XVID content. And whenever we watch something compatible, it is not even full screen..

Sounds like he's saying that the built in player (free!) does play DIVX files if at that OS (and presumably later OS releases).

No need to load/install anything new...
