QRCode reading issues with BBM 5.0

Just upgraded BBM to new 5.0 on my 8330 running OS 4.5.  Can no longer read QRCodes that link directly to streaming online video files.  media player hangs in the buffering process every time.  This was not an issue with the previous version of BBM. An example of a QRCode that worked fine before and does not now is here:

What broke?  This potentially affects many of our customers who use our QRCodes to view online vids.

 

Thanks for any insight and/or a quick fix.

Re: QRCode reading issues with BBM 5.0

I was able to read that QR code at the link just fine, no problems, and I have the latest (5.0.1.49) of BBMessenger, but on OS 5.

Re: QRCode reading issues with BBM 5.0

thanks - apparently there is something hinky on my BB. I'll try reinstalling BBM and if all else fails, maybe install OS 5.   At least its not a global problem and not affecting customers as I had feared.

Re: QRCode reading issues with BBM 5.0

hmmm - reinstalling BBM 5.0 did not fix.  I did notice that my version is 5.0.0.41 - not 49?  Where did you get that version?  Or is it that way because you are not on a BB 8830

[ Edited ]

Sorry, I meant 5.0.1.41.

 

What is the operating system on your BlackBerry.. the exact release?

What is your Operating System loaded to your device?
Look at Options > About, third line down beginning with a "v.4.x.xxx"
What is yours?

 

The latest is 4.5.0.186:
