Video on PSP

Post by Harshboy » Thu May 11, 2006 2:46 pm

Ok, i have tried many different programs and i cant seem to get videos to work on the PSP. Whether its a hombrew app to run wmv or a tut to convert wmv(s) to the special mp4 and other file. I dont know, and it makes me so mad! Also, it needs to be free :P

WMV sucks. WMA sucks. Proprietary, closed formats suck.

Try downloading VLC Media Player from <a href="http://www.videolan.org/vlc/">here</a> and opening the file with it. It may play properly. If it does, use the Transcode/Save to File wizard to convert it to an MPEG 4 video (which isn't "special" to the PSP at all. 8))

The only problems I have had with VLC playing files are RealMedia (sucks, see above statement) and some .WMV movies that use the Windows Media version 3 compression. (I don't think they have it figured out completely yet...)

On a 1.5 PSP, you need a .MP4 with a strange name and another file. So, I dont know.

well if you have 1.5 you COULD use psp video 9 to convert them to mpeg-4's, but you could also use the PMP (psp media player) which can play i believe divx, avi, wmv, and a few more formats.

and about the names, 1.5 can only support mpeg-4 and they are named M4V(five numbers).mp4 an example would be M4V10001.mp4
