Thanks! That is what I was able to figure out as well. Crackberry had some good talk about it, and I just started messing around a lot with it, checking different sites etc.

What I found through experience is that will stream, but you need to have an APN entered in the TCP settings... except some carriers you don't because one of the BB books has these settings emulated in it.

I also found that you can't download from, so if you want to save it to your phone, check out

That site is supposed to allow streaming too, but I have yet to get it to with my 8110, although a friend of mine with a 8130 was able to get it to stream, I think it has to do with the fact he is running on 3g with Sprint.

Other than that, it is really hit and miss with streaming and downloading, as you said. Turning on 'style sheets' 'java script' 'embedded media' and 'html tables' helps a lot with more videos being downloadable, and a couple became streamable... these setting changes also let me follow a lot more links, and made for a near desktop like web experience.
