We are new to PlayBook and fortunately updated both our PlayBook without any problems.
What we would like to do when next on holiday is watch a movie whilst on the plane. Is there an app. Similar to a movie player whereby we can download a movie and watch the same on the plane? I have checked the web and can find articles relating to YouTube and Internet usage but nothing offline.
Could anyone please advise if this is possible and if so a solution please?

Mostly, I download a movie or convert from a DVD I own, and transfer to the Playbook.
Here's a good previous thread on the subject.

Thank you for your reply. I had read the thread you referred to prior to completing this post, however I didn't feel it assisted me in my plight.
With regards to the DVD option, I feel this maybe of better use to myself, if I connect my PlayBook to my laptop, with the required DVD inserted, can I just copy the same across and would I need some item of software to run it please on the PlayBook?

Thank you for your reply.
So if I just change the dvd content to mp4 format, and forward it to my PlayBook, I already have blackberry desktop suite on my laptop, I should be in a position to play the same? I'm somewhat of a novice to computers, but wouldn't. I need some software item on my PlayBook to play the mp4 conversion on?

Also you can play MKV files also, but Playbook doesn't play MKV with AC3 audio. With other types of audio stream all is good.
I was searching a free player that will support that, but I didn't find it yet. Can some skilled to advise REALLY the best video player for Playbook?
