WMA, WMV, ASF files on Blackberry 8330?

I can't seem to play wma or wmv files on my Blackberry Curve 8330.  Are these files supported on my phone?

WMA andn WMV should be. Of course, there are different "flavors" of those file types, but it should.

Actually, it's a .asx file I'm trying to view from the blackberry web browser.  Is that supported?

Re: WMA, WMV, ASF files on Blackberry 8330?

asx is usually a play list for streaming The file streamed is usually WMA or WMV or ASF, some flavours are indeed supported by the blackberry Media player.

BUT the Blackberry can't do streams unless you have upgraded your OS to 4.5 version. It can be done by reading :
http://supportforums.blackberry.com/rim/board/message?board.id=8300&thread.id=6807&jump=true

then you can do streaming. And if you are lucky, the file in the stream can be readable by your blackberry.

I have the 8330 Curve.  It doesn't look like it's supported. Smiley Sad
