How To Put Movies On PSP

Sony PSP can't play MPEG-4 video encoded with bit rate higher than 768kbps that is why high quality MPEG-4 files need to be converted to a lower bit rate. The PSP will not recognize MPEG-4 video file unless it has a name in the format of M4V10001.MP4. The file needs to start with M4V followed by five numbers, and then it must end in .MP4. 

For an MPEG-4 file that have been specially formatted for the Sony PSP, there will usually be the .THM file alongside it. If your movie file has a name of M4V10001.MP4, then there should be the file with the name M4V10001.THM alongside it. The THM file is a simple 160x120 thumbnail saved in JPEG format at 72dpi that is associated with the video file. As long as the name of the THM file is the same as the MP4 file, this picture will be displayed alongside the video file in the Video interface of your Sony PSP .

Version 2.0 of the Sony PSP firmware added support for another video file format: MPEG-4 AVC. These files follow a similar naming convention to the regular .MP4 files, as they are named MAQxxxxx.MP4, where xxxxx is five numbers. AVC video files offer better image quality then regular MPEG-4 files.

Transfer movies to PSP

To transfer movies or other videos to PSP you need to convert video to Sony PSP movie (.MP4 file). PSP video converters like AVS Video Converter are capable of converting almost all popular video such as DVD, VCD, SVCD, MOV, RM, MPEG, WMV, 3GP, AVI to PSP video .MP4 format (H.264/MPEG-4). After that you need to put videos to PSP.

How to copy/upload/put videos to PSP

  1. Connect your Sony PSP to your computer.
  2. Once the Memory Stick shows up on your computer, create a new folder in the root directory of the Memory Stick, called MP_ROOT.
  3. Inside the MP_ROOT folder, create another folder called 101MNV01 or 100MNV01. Whichever name you go with, this folder is where all of your MPEG-4 videos must go.
  4. Transfer/Put/Upload/Copy some videos into either /MP_ROOT/100MNV01/ or /MP_ROOT/ 101MNV01/.
  5. Disconnect your Sony PSP from your computer.
Done! You can watch your favorite movie in PSP.
