The LV solution includes interactive mobile video dbms and User Generated Content (“www.movy.tv”), enterprise mobile video (MMES), camera phone streaming (MC2) and large-scale live MultiFeed surveillance (MLSS).

The generic LV Player is a highly optimized, downloadable java midlet, providing optimized video decoding on a BlackBerry smartphone or uses the embedded player. The LV Linux server technologies provide dynamic adaptive bitrate encoding of live or archived multimedia.

LV's technologies provide globally accessible, mobile multimedia streaming services. Movy.tv uses concepts of UGC for archived and live media. Movy.tv content is searchable through tags, titles, private Groups and corporate Portals. MMES include movy.tv database, encoding, and mobile transmission.

This is yet again (i'm getting so tired of saying this) one of those things that not many Canadians can enjoy, due to the data that this would incurr...also the content on the services is a true factor in wether or not the service will succeed ...being able to upload your own videos is great but people will always want more..more means copyrighted videos..not just clips...but FULL length shows and videos and that involves licensing etc..etc..so imo..this will be perfect for those who just wanna see a few clips,maybe share some videos of the party they got a lil tipsy at lol

As long as that videos for blackberry site exsist we are good for shows we just need to start donating to the person behind the site I already sent in my donation and people with DVRs start recording some episodes and transfering them to your ocmputers then email them to the site they will get the Conversion done if we all pitch in a little eventually we will have a huge MEGA STORAGE of downloadable Vids for the Crackberry but SHHhhhhh(the RIAA may be listening)

Why are there no working video applications for the 8130? Several claim to work, but like most, they fail with java IO errors (even when the application has permission)

Delete the app; reinstall it; turn off your phone and try again. This is simply a socket connection problem relating the BlackBerry OS. You are simply trying to download an octet stream of text when this happens.

You should also check you APN settings; you have to access a webserver external to your Internet

And check that you have a more recent OS on your handset.
Movy.tv access the Intel mpeg4 player on the 8100 series when the OS is 4.2.2..or greater.

Please help! I installed the BB version on my 8300 but when I open the program, it says "retrieving device list". When it reaches 100%, nothing happens and I only have the option to go to debug mode. I already set all the permissions to "allow", what am I doing wrong?
