Manage media between BlackBerry and Facebook with Dazzboard

Comments

While your BlackBerry has an incredible amount of Facebook integration with the latest build of Facebook for BlackBerry, there are still a few issues with the UI and managing your media. For example, if you want to upload a picture to Facebook from your BlackBerry, you can only do so one picture at a time.

Dazzboard is a free online service that allows you to drag and drop media between Facebook and your BlackBerry. The service also supports a variety of other web 2.0 initiatives such as Flickr and YouTube.

The product is currently only for PC and users with Firefox 3.x.

Try Dazzboard for Facebook and start drag and dropping your media today.

If your BlackBerry isn’t connecting, make sure to use Mass Media Storage Mode.

BlackBerry Storm YouTube Client available

Comments

I don’t know how many people will be interested in this, as I have no problem browsing YouTube via my Storm’s web browser, but a dedicated application usually offers more functionality over the mobile web. Google has released a YouTube client for the BlackBerry Storm, allowing users to get a YouTube experience catered specifically for their favorite touchscreen. Here’s what’s included:

    * Browse millions of videos from your phone.
    * Access your favorites, your own uploaded videos and your favorite channels.
    * Share, rate, and comment on videos from your phone.
    * Upload videos from your phone.
    * Find the specific video you’re looking for by easily searching for it.
    * Discover “Related” videos for each video you watch on your phone.

Post a comment and tell us what you think of the YouTube application. If you like it, we’ll do a hands-on video for the BlackBerry Nation.

Telus Removes BlackBerry Streaming Media Block

Comments

More good news for Telus BlackBerry subscribers today! While you’re pressing refresh every 5 seconds waiting for the new Telus BlackBerry Storm site to load, why don’t you pass the time by watching a YouTube video on your current Telus ‘Berry?

That’s right, Telus has now removed the streaming media block for BlackBerrys, meaning that websites like m.youtube.com are now useful. Many are speculating that this unblocking is part of Telus’ BlackBerry Storm launch prep, but the reason doesn’t really matter. Streaming media!

Note: Previously there was some concern that streaming media would only work on OS 4.5 devices and above, but we can confirm OS 4.3 works as well. OS 4.2 users, you’re on your own.

YouTube testing mobile ads

Comments

Both mobile advertising and video are both still picking up in popularity, but Google’s willing to put their eggs in that basket now that they’ve begun testing ads on YouTube’s mobile page. It’s tricky enough to get BlackBerry users to enjoy mobile video with so few 3G handsets out there, let alone convince them to click through on ads. Screen real estate is also at a premium, which might work out better for advertisers who can claim a bigger chunk of visibility, but end users may just see full-size banners as obnoxious. Many video providers integrate their ads right with videos, which might be a better way to go about things on mobile, since it they don’t impede the mobile browsing experience and provide richer advertising opportunities.

vTap updated for OS 4.3

Comments

Hayden just updated us on the status of vTap, the video search and video player for mobile. It’s now optimized for BlackBerry OS 4.3, which included streaming video support, and stretches back to the 8700. The search is pretty cool, working a lot like Boopsie in that it offers results as you type. On top of YouTube searching, they’ve also got a Wikipedia search with the same instant-return feature. The usual disclaimer follows that you probably shouldn’t be trying this out unless you’ve got an unlimited data plan, or really deep pockets. While it doesn’t look like the video search is ready just yet (just Wikipedia), we’re sure it will soon be accessible at http://m.vtap.com from your mobile browser.
