Format of the video byte stream

Hi All,


Just wondering, can anyone clear up what the format is of the video byte stream that is stored when we take a video using the blackberry device.


If i want to convert that to a different format such as mpeg4 or flv what version would i need to convert the byte stream from.



Thanks for your help guys

Re: Format of the video byte stream

http://ffmpeg.org/ is your friend -- it will tell you what the container and codec is. I'm pretty sure it will be a 3GP container, but I'm unsure to the codec.
