BlackBerry's first BB10 smart phone is a decent device, with a brand-new interface and some great software features like BBM and built-in photo editing. BlackBerry smartphones have never really been seen as full blown multimedia devices, thanks in part to their small, low resolution displays, but the BlackBerry Z10 changes all that. Using a microSD card is probably the quickest way to get content onto the BlackBerry Z10 as it circumvents the need to download and install the BlackBerry Link desktop before being allowed to drag and drop files when you hook the handset up to a computer with the USB cable. BlackBerry Link enables you to sync and share your media files between your computer and the Z10 as well as backing up your data, just in case something untoward happened.
With an HD 4.2-inch display, sizable 16GB of internal memory with the option to expand via microSD and additional power under the hood the Z10 is ready to take on any type of media. Comparing with Android smartphones and its predecessor Blackberry OS phones, the Z10 supports a wider range of media formats:
Blackberry Z10 supported file types
Blackberry Z10 Supported Audio formats
AAC, AMR, AWB, FLAC, M4A, MKA, MP3, OGG, WAV, WMA
Blackberry Z10 Supported Video formats
3GP, 3GP2, ASF, AVI, F4V, M4V, MKV, MOV, MP4, MPEG4, WMV
Among all the supported formats, H.264 .mp4 is recommended as the optimal format for local playback. If any MKV, AVI, WMV, MP4, VOB, M2TS videos do not play on Blackberry Z10 properly, you can convert videos for Blackberry Z10 with this Blackberry Z10 video converter before transferring videos to Blackberry Z10.

My Blackberry Z10 can’t play MKV, AVI, WMV, MP4 videos…
When Blackberry Z10 refuses to play a video, it could be due to one or more of the following reasons:
- Unsupported video format (e.g. *.vob 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. iTunes videos)
The Video to Blackberry Z10 Converter also compresses 1080p full HD video to 720p which is optimized for the Z10 phone. To watch protected iTunes movies on Blackberry 10, you need DRM removal app. To rip Blu-rays and DVDs to Blackberry Z10 supported formats, you may use the all-in-one package Video Converter Ultimate.
