downloading movies to the playbook

Using a PC, how do I find movies in the correct format to load onto my playbook.  I am assuming the content at itunes is incombatible.

 

I found music but no film-tv stuff on the blackberry site.

 

thanks

Re: downloading movies to the playbook

I have found that ipod format plays well, and I think mp4..... There are lots of converters available. Download to pc, convert then copy to playbook by usb or wifi

Re: downloading movies to the playbook

Mp4 is the best for many mediaplayers, ipad, cellphone, and Blackberry Playbook as well, i always convert videos to mp4 with H.264, don't know much about other people and in my option, this is definitely the best
As for video converters, there are too many and all you have to do is try Google "free mp4 video converter"

So, if I am, reading all this correctly, itunes should work, just has to be converted. As well Amazon streaming is good. Blackberry movies coming soon.

Not sure why the young man at the store couldnt explain any of this to me. All the info he gave me was incorrect.

Amazon prime is not available in Canada.  So will try the ipod format from itunes.

 

Thanks for all your help, I really appreciate it.
