Movies from PC to PSP

Posted in Gaming tagged , , at 9:04 pm by pmatos

Well, this is just the simple procedure, ill-documented, on how to pass movies from the PC to the PSP. Given the movies have to be in a specific format of video/audio, I would recommend you to get Handbrake (available for Linux, MacOSX, and Windows). This software has a profile specific for PSP encoding.

After the encoding connect the PSP to the PC through USB and activate the USB connection on the PSP by going to System -> USB connection [this may vary with firmware] and open the drive that shows up on your PC. Create a VIDEO folder [no other name is supported] and move the file there [there are places misguiding you to create a MP_ROOT directory… don’t do this, it won’t work, at least not in current 3.95 firmware].

You can watch the video by accessing it in you PSP through the Movies selection menu.

Have fun!

    still true 2 years after it was written, on a brand new PSP3000. Why does the VIDEO folder not exist to start with? And why does it have to be in a completely different level in the structure from the other folders?. And then not documented? Bizarre.
