Please Login to Remove!

Anyone know how to view full screen video OTA? For instancs if i go to youtube and view a video it wont play full screen it will play in a medium size square in the middle of my screen instead of using the whole entire screen...I can view the preloaded video in full screen but was wondering about OTA Video....

There is a limit to the size of file you can download OTA. I believe it is 500kb

Which really isn't relevant to rtsp:// streams.

Here's an example of a full-screen streaming link:

NASA TV

Please note that this link won't work on a BB OS earlier than 4.3, and may not play well over anything less than an EVDO connection.

Yep. I don't imagine most PC/Mac browsers understand rtsp by default. The 4.3+ Blackberries do, though.

Anyone know of any premium Media Players that i could purchase to take over the default player and have that media player launch when OTA Videos is being played and view it fullscreen?

I can view other videos in full screen... videos I took, videos I downloaded from videos4blackberry.info, and some I had ripped from DVDs to my PC, then converted using Media Manager.

What kind ofvideos are you trying to view in full screen? YouTube videos won't play in full screen on the BB.

Is it a size issue or a flash video issue?
