Is it possible to downlaod a video from itunes and place on bb, the same way some people do for audio? For some 4.2 users, we burn the music to a CD and convert with Roxio.

Yes you must strip the DRM again to get it to work.

I will try to figure it out. I used itunes as an example because I did not see any other sources where you can buy tv shows etc. I am not an advocate for the $9.99 movie I may see once. It may be marketable to be able to rent videos for a cheaper price. For example, the movie is only good for a week or ten days and then it shuts down.

movielink.com for rentals is one i used to use.

I no get them on xbox so not really sure. Im not a movie or TV show buyer myself as i dont watch them more than once either.

i do think Apple will get into the movie rental business. HD also.

Very good. I did not know if this would be feasible.

Three hours to download a 20 min video. Hmmm. There is has to be another way.

It seems that it does the opposite. Convert to ipod. NOT away from it

yeah, Soundtaxi says it does it legally. Maybe legal in Ukraine but not in US.
he meant it strips DRM off files.

What was 3 hours for 20 min? I used movielink back a year or so ago and it was not that slow.

Yes. That is very slow and I have a fast connection. I was going to look into tunebite to convert. 300 MB

any movie conversion tools are going to be slow.
I usually use Handbrake and it take a long time too, just a lot of work being done by the program.

Wirelessly posted (Verizon 8830: BlackBerry8830/4.2.2 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/105)

What is Handbrake?

Should I convert to WMV to save space?
For example, in WMA is a smaller music format than some of the other formats?
