Some BlackBerry devices capture video at 3GP/MP4 (optimized format supported by most BlackBerry devices) the problem lies when the user tries to copy that format to a Windows based PC that does not have the extra 3GP video code required by Windows Media Player to play the file.
This guide will show you how to copy and convert video captured from your BlackBerry to a standard .avi format that is widely supported by most video players.
Before starting you need to enable mass storage mode on your BlackBerry device—this allows you to transfer pics, music, and movies without having to use the desktop manager. If you would like to use BlackBerry supported software that does the same thing install BlackBerry Desktop Software.

Specify resolution settings on the video tab.
Go to the save and encode tab and click “save to” and browse to the location where you would like the optimized/converted video to be created.
