There’s several ways to get YouTube videos on your Blackberry. The basic idea is just to find a program that will download the videos from YouTube in flash format and then convert it into a format that can be viewed on your Blackberry like mpeg-4. It’s a bit of a process so today I’m going to show you how to use a website called tinytube.net to download and watch YouTube videos directly from your browser.
The idea behind tinytube.net is to provide access to mobile users to videos hosted on youtube, daily motion, and various other video sites. It is mainly catered towards typical cell phone with Blackberry users a bit of an afterthought, because the streaming feature doesn’t work and videos are formatted about a quarter the size of your Blackberry screen. Which isn’t that bad because it keeps file sizes down.
Instructions are below to view, download and save video files on supported Blackberry models.
(Note: I couldn’t grab screenshots of the video because the program provided by RIM doesn’t support screencapture of videos.)
