    Bla1ze's Picks! BlackBerry Media Roundup 019


    Good job on your first post. "Click Picks" were always something to look forward to and it looks like you haven't missed a beat, well done the Lightning Vs Volcano is on my berry. :)

    Nice post, Bla1ze. I just downloaded the Blue Fractal wallpaper, and I'm rockin it on my Curve right now.

    I look forward to more Bla1ze picks in future.


    Hey man!! You didn't tell me you was doing this!! You sneaky dog you!! ;) Great Job!!! I miss doing it but with the little one was kinda hard to balance it all! Thanks for picking up my slack, just means when get go to CES in 09 I'm gunna owe you more beers! :)

    Hehe!! Ya I snuck this one in on ya...

    Glad to help out and glad everyone is enjoying it, more to come thats for sure :)

    Thanks, this and the weekly software round up are my favorite posts. I sent the Mario 3 wall paper to all 3 of my BlackBerry using roommates.

    The wallpapers and the videos, one thing though, I couldn't get the Volcano picture in the right size for my BB. Oh well.

    What screen size do you need?, you could download one of the other ones and slide it through the wallpaper maker to fit your devices

    Welcome Bla1ze... and if I can be so Bold as to ask... any chance you could find us some alternative themes for the Bold?

    Lots of folk are asking about the 'Today' theme, but as I am still waiting for my first BB that is not one I am too familiar with, I'm afraid!

    The current version of the Plazmic CDK does not support 4.6 OS, nor the screen reolution for the Bold, until Plazmic/RIM release that to the public..themes for the Bold are not going to be possible.

    Thank you for your prompt reply. I hadn't realised what was involved, but now you have explained the position let's just hope that the necessary CDK is released before too long!

    anyone else getting no sound on the making of dark knight video? it starts off with sound during the "screen" part at the beginning but then all sound goes dead.

    any help would be much appreciated!

    Congratulations, welcome, and thanks, Bla1ze.
    I am a regular contributor to various of the curve (4:3 aspect ratio) series wallpaper categories. I've submitted numberous items since the last batch of wallpaper updates were updated August 10 or August 11.
    Is there a certain day of the week, or a certain day of the month, that we can expect to see updates on the wallpaper site...???

    Their is no certain day or anything that gets assigned to it, but with what you said being taken under consideration, I will set aside some time tonight and go through some of the wallpapers that are still in the data base waiting to be published, will for sure look at the ringtones section as well for everyone.

    Thank you, very very much, Bla1ze, for your reply. And by no means was I complaining. On the contrary, (and you have just proven it to be true yet again), this is one of the most welcoming and interesting sites to browse in, as the day goes by, (work day or day off) that I know of.
    I got my first blackberry, an 8130 pearl at the first of June, this year, and liked it so much that I took it back a week later, and exchanged it for the 8330 curve.
    I have never had a phone that changed my life. Until now.
    My wallpapers, and hopefully some ringtones, are my way of giving back to those on this site who have helped me learn to crawl, and my way of passing rainy days, for hours in the BB-zone.
    Thanks again, sincerely.

    Thank you for the great roundup Bla1ze! I've downloaded 2 new wallpaper files and a ringtone. Congratulations to Click on the new baby as well. is an amazing place. :o)

    Hello, I am very new to all this so forgive me if i am little slow. I recently downloaded a video to my 8310. I get sound and no video. I was wondering what i am doing wrong i can not figure it out the format reads mp4. does anyone have any suggestions

    The video is NOT properly formatted for your BB...BB devices support the mp4 format, but depending on what "profile" was used to create that video it may not work, the BB media play is kind of finicky in regards to certain media files..with mp4 or can go 3 ways...

    1) No video, but sound...

    2) No sound, but video...

    3) Everything works fine...

    Your files were not formatted specifically for BB, chances are they were designed for an iPod if under mp4 format.

    3GP format is the most compatible for BB devices.

    Tried to visit your site today and it is not available. Is this only temporary? I hope so! This site has been a real lifesaver for me. I am a frequent business traveler and have spent many a useless hour stuck in various airports. What would I do without some videos to watch on my berry? Please tell me the site will be up and running again soon!

    anyone have any info on why this dark knight video plays without sound??? i asked this last week to no avail. Thanks for any help!
