Watch Movies On PSP: How To Convert Movies And Transfer Them From Your PC To Your PSP

Unfortunately, you can’t just transfer the movie file from your computer to your PSP and watch it. You need to convert it to a PSP compatible file format first. Why is that? Because the movies you download from the Internet, regardless of their file format (usually MPEG-4, VCD, AVI, etc.) are too high quality for PSP to support. Therefore, it is necessary to reduce its quality. Here comes PSP video converters and MP4 PSP video file format.

Some information about MP4 PSP video file format

All movie files that you can watch on your PSP come with an .MP4 extension. This is the only file type supported by the PSP (in version 2 of the PSP, Sony added support for another video file type, the MPEG-4 AVC file type, which offers better video quality). Here is a sample name of an MP4 video file:


MP4 files start with M4V followed by a series of five numbers and end with .MP4. There is also usually another file along with the main PSP movie file that has the same name as the MP4 file but a different extension. For example:
