Re: How can i play *.flv in blackberry

I'm not sure if these is something like FlashLite that would run but, in any case, you'd probably have to at least consider

transcoding. Not sure if BES will do this but AFAIK they do some format conversions. If you must play FLV and can't

get a product with native code, from what I can tell on google there are open source players that could

probably adapt to java pretty easily. If you can transcode, there are some formats with native support and

I know that there are pure java mpeg applets ( with obvious performance limitations, if you have wifi you could

be CPU limited).
