Today, we're going to talk about how to get movies onto your PSP. Now, it's not an especially difficult process, but there are a few technical things that you need to know. First of all, make sure that you have a good size memory stick. If you don't have at least two two gigs to four gigs it's not going to get you a lot of movies on there. With a with a decent size memory stick you could have four to six standard length two hour features on your PSP. Second, MPEG-4 is the only format that that the PSP PSP can play videos in, so when you're ripping a movie make sure that it is MPEG-4 or mp4 is the file extension. The PSP native resolution is four eighty by two seventy-two. Now, in the past the PSP was not able to actually offer this resolution. The most recent firmware updates; however, have let you go ahead and put videos on your PSP as high as DVD resolution, but you don't need to go that high. Four eighty by two seventy-two is just fine. That'll fully fill the the wide screen on your PSP and you'll get UMD quality video. Now, the next thing you need to do is go ahead and rip that video to your preferred, to your preferred size, and then you're going to remove the memory card or you'll plug in your PSP by finding the USB connection under the settings menu, putting it in USB mode, which and your USB port is right here. That'll connect to your computer. And you're going to find, on the memory stick you're going to either find, or you're going to have to create a folder called MP_ROOT. Now, once you've found the MP_ROOT directory you're going to have to put in another directory called 100MNV01. That's the default directory that the PSP looks for, where the PSP looks for movies. You're going to drop all your movie files into there. Once you've dropped them into there the PSP is going to automatically recognize the movies and you don't have to do anything else except just play them from the movies menu. When you're done, either eject the the memory stick duo from your card reader, or unplug your PSP from the computer. And remember, if you're on a Windows system it's safely remove hardware. That way, you won't cause any confusion in your system. On a Mac side, just hit the eject little icon by the drive, and then you're ready to watch beautiful quality movies on your PSP.
