what do you mean not transfer? they dont play or PC wont copy them?

 

What did you use to convert them?

 

MP4 is the best format to use.

You can go to YouTube and do a search on how to use the free and open source Handbrake transcoding software from http://www.handbrake.fr and while you're there, sign up to the forums and ask your question to their community. Someone there will know the answer or be able to guide you along. I suggest you do this because it would be nice if you came back to this community and posted your follow-up reply for anyone else who comes across your post. You'd help others out with your knowledge.

 

I myself spent $0.99 and purchased the app called MovieFLVPlayer from the app store: http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/48351/?lang=en and it plays FLV's just fine and doesn't need transcoding. Save your efforts and buy the app for the author deserves credit for his/her work.

 

By the way, here is a little more information on it for you to consider: http://www.playbookprojects.com/movieflvplayer/537/

 

Disclaimer: I have no affiliation with this author or the software. I merely use it and love it for it works!

Hey BlynDon...YOU must go here and get this software...YOU will be relieved TRUST ME!!!!

 

http://www.freemake.com/free_video_converter/

 

Its FREE, and yes, we all love free. It is extremely easy, just drag your vid into program and select what you want to do and in what format 3 clicks and you are off mate. If you want easier, just drag the vid into program and select Blackberry playbook and it converts according to RIM standards for a trouble free experience.

 

I have been through most of these so called converters and they seem to always disappoint.

 

I would wish you luck, but you won't need it

 

ENJOY!

That software by FreeMake.com looks very promising - awesome in fact. I have never heard of it before. I'm going to do more research on it and check out some reviews. Thanks for the heads up.

 

Update: I've been reading it installs some browser toolbars that aren't exactly easy to uninstall and you don't get a say in their installation or not. Mind you I only read a few reviews off of Cnet.com thus far but still, I'd be aware of this.

Yes, it is not a typical toolbar. Its basically a one button download and convert icon. It is part of the software. 

 

Good for you to do such research, i admire that greatly ; )  I am sure it's only a matter of time before you find what's right for you now that you've got some comparison software and what to look for.

 

Continued success my friend ....

 

Cheers

freemake installs couple of toolbar which slows down your system, get another one such as Video Converter Pro
