problem with video viewing

I was just wondering how I play videos on my curve without it keep buffering slowly and freezing. Also some websites I can't watch videos due to the format being wrong, what can I do/change or what can I download to update the video player to watch and upload files quicker etc Thanks Tim

Re: problem with video viewing


you are viewing videos through streaming. What that means, is that you are downloading the full video (which can go up to 3MB) and are able to watch it before it is completely downloaded. Depending on the speed of your network, this can take a lot of time.

are you on 3G ?

abut the other formats, you can't do anything. The BlackBerry devices support only some video formats (more than any other devices though).
