2. Click “Format” bar, you can choose a profile for general Android devices which is compatible with BlackBerry Torch 9800 as well. Follow “Android > Android Phones 720P Video (*.mp4)” or "Android Phones 1080P Video(*.mp4 )". This format shrinks a 100min movie down to 1-2GB and still keeps good quality and aspect ratio.

1. If you are not satisfied with the default settings, click the “Settings” button, you can change the settings by yourself. You can change the video size (pix), bitrate, audio channels, etc. Just remember the file size mainly depends on the bitrate, which means the higher bitrate you set, the bigger size you get. According my experience, the 720p and with 1500~2000kbps bitrate is just suitable setting for watching videos on Android phones.

2. If your want to do some editing with your video such as cutting the part you don't need, adding text/image/video watermark or adding the subtitle, just click the “Edit” button to do these work.

3. When BlackBerry Torch 9800 refuses to play a video, it could be due to one or more of the following reasons:
  • Unsupported video format (e.g. *.mkv format)
  • Unsupported codec (e.g. AC3)
  • Huge file size (e.g. H.264 MP4 video of 10GB+)
  • High resolution (e.g. 1080p video and above)
  • Protections (e.g. Digital Copy movies)
4. To rip Blu-rays, DVDs and ISO/IFO to BlackBerry Torch 9800 supported formats, you may use the all-in-one package Video Converter Ultimate.
