We've developed an ASP.NET website that provides progressive download Flash videos for a client. These videos can get pretty large (upwards of 50 MB) which makes them very poor candidates for mobile delivery. When they try to view them from their mobile devices
the video content is very "hitchy" as you can imagine.
Can anyone help me understand what we need to to in order to make large videos like this one available to users of mobile devices. It sticking with Flash do we need to look at streaming servers? Is there a better video format that we can host over HTTP
for mobile devices? Should we be looking at non-Flash streaming resources?
Any information and direction you can provide would be very helpful.
Thank you; Happy New Year.

Recently BlackBerry made a contract with Adobe for Flash support in their devices, especially for BlackBerry Playbook. Old BlackBerry devices wont support Flash.
One more thing, Mobile browsers cannot play videos until the HTML 5 supports. So better provide an option for the users to download the videos to the Mobile devices, and they can watch using any compatible Video application.
Hope it helps u...

So how do you recommend they access the video? Do we simply place links within our mobile-ready web pages directly to the file? Are Blackberry users then able to simply select the link and download locally to their device?
Thanks for your help.

You can provide links for the videos, and let users download that videos to their devices and play in any of the Video player available. I think this is the ideal solution for ur problem.

I was searching video play on Blackberry browser and got some code. I didn’t try it but I wanted to share it with you. Is it applicable or not?
Can it be a solution for “RF’s” problem?

Thanks for the link. I think that's exactly what he was suggesting, creating a link to the remote video resource which forces the user to download the file to their device from which they play it.
Thanks very much!
