Re: save youtube videos and web pages

You cannot save or download youtube videos in BlackBerry device. Also saving a web page is not possible. However, you can bookmark a webpage so that you can revisit that page with ease.

Re: save youtube videos and web pages

That makes the device then not much more than an expensive toy. It is my understanding that previous blackberries have had this capability, although each method seemed to entail doing it through the desktop connection. I have no access to a desktop to be able to do this.
So why would those crazy canucks change their toys in such a negative way?

As far as I know you can :

  • download a video file that the web server allows you to download
  • stream a video file from Youtube or any other RSTP server using cellular network or Wi-Fi
  • download an audio file that the web server allows you to download using cellular network or Wi-Fi
  • stream an audio file from any RSTP or shoutcast server using cellular network or Wi-Fi
  • upload videos or audio files from a computer using Bluetooth or USB or Wi-Fi
  • upload HTML files to your BlackBerry from a computer using Bluetooth or USB or Wi-Fi
  • bookmark a webpage

 

but those are not the features you are looking for (at all).

Exactly. Some of those features may in themslves be useful, but I have extremey limited connectivity, and need to be abe to read files offline when the connectivity goes out, such as when I walk into the house. It is enough to make me seriously consider going with another make altogether.

Re: save youtube videos and web pages

Does anybody know of any third party apps that would add the capability which I seek, or at least allow me to take screen shots? Found some on the net, but was not able to load any onto my deviice directly (but might have been able to if I had access to a computer).i
