The HD sample video

That comes preinstalled on the Playbook - is there a spot that it can be downloaded? I had to factory reset my Playbook (played a bit too much and broke something :Rolleyes: ) and the video has gone away too -- I was using that video to show my friends just what kind of clarity the PB has...

Honestly, the iPhone was the spouse's idea!

Re: The HD sample video

I don't think so... the only want to retain the sample video is to wipe the Playbook using the Desktop Software, and  reload the operating system using the BlackBerry Desktop Software.  When you do that, it wipes everything off the OS, but will leave the games and sample videos/pictures intact.

 

I don't know how to install the sample video independently.

Re: The HD sample video

OH , but as an alternative, you can use the PodCast app, visit one of the channel with the HD videos and download one of those great podcats to your device,.,.. some are better than the sample.

 

Go to Podcasts > search for "Alaska" and download any of the podcasts from the AlaskaHDTV channel.

Unless the tech support has found a magic wand in the last few days, they won't have a solution for this either.

My tip of the day, don't waste your time calling them. Download one of the AlaskaHDTV podcasts, they're even better, I promise you.

Re: The HD sample video

I guess I am kind of amazed that Rim has not stepped forward on this issue.

 

Showing that video is a huge selling point - it always impresses folks. So Rim should make it available so that we can show and sell.

 

Someone suggested that it be available in the appworld so that it is limited to authentic users of the pb.
