It's not a video.  It's a web page that displays all products I buy for my company.  The web page comes up fine, but when I try to log-in it gives me that message.

ok, open your browser and press the bb key.

goto options/browser config

 

make sure all of the boxes are checked.

Hello,

 

This KB documents the supported media types of the native (i.e., no add-ons) BB. If the media does not conform to the KB, then it is not playable on your BB with the native toolsets. If you are using the native BB Browser, then you might try adjusting some settings.


Websites can be coded to perform better with some browsers rather than others. The BB Browser can appear to websites as several different things...that setting is, from within the Browser App, ( blackberry_logo.jpg > Options > Browser Configuration > Browser Identification). Changing that to another browser might help your BB interact better with some websites. In combination with all of the other configuration settings, you need to find the combination of all of these settings that works best for the sites you are visiting. Sadly, there is no "best advice" to give as each persons needs are different. But, I typically find that changing the Browser Identification often helps -- most often by changing to FF or IE (if those are available to you...the options vary by carrier).


Otherwise, you might have to try a different browser to play that particular media from that site. You can try Bolt, OperaMini, and others.

 

Good luck!

Re: "Unsupported media type: application/octet-stream"

Well, I had the same problem and changed the server "Content-Type" header to "audio/mp3". It worked like a charm!
