My Device: Blackberry Torch 9800

Movie formats supported

I have several movies with digital copy rights that I can transfer to mobile devices. I tried downloading in quicktime and in windows media formats and the Blackberry Torch supports neither. How can I get use out of my digital copies of my movies that I paid for when I bought the movies???? What videos can this phone actually play??? I cannot play any videos off of my msn home page either. This is supposed to be a great browser but doesnt support any popular media files.

Re: Movie formats supported



Those are two separate questions.


For media formats that the BB Media Player can play for files stored on the BB, see this article.


Streaming media is a different question. This KB might have some insight for you.


Good luck!
