MediaCoder PSP Transcoding in 5 Easy Steps

MediaCoder is a universal audio/video batch transcoder that puts together audio/video codes and tools from the open source community into an all-in-one solution.

In just five easy steps, PSP users cans use MediaCoder to transcode for PSP Medial Player (PMP), enabling users to playback full screen (480×272) and full motion MPEG-4 video on PSP. Note that PMP does not support firmware later than version 1.5.

Step 1: Get and install PMP Mod v2.00 on your PSP.
A simple PMP installer is available at the MediaCoder site. After you download the file, double-click on it and you will see the installer dialog:


If you can see the PSP screen, you have set up PMP on your PSP.


Step 2: Download and install the latest version of MediaCoder. Let the installer wizard get you through the process.

Step 3: Use MediaCoder to transcode for PMP.  Add the  video file(s) you want to watch on PSP to MediaCoder’s transcoding list by clicking the Add File or Add Folder button. Since version 0.3.8, MediaCoder comes with a dedicated transcoder for PSP Media Player. Click the PSP button to activate it.



Step 4: Crop to keep Aspect Ratio.
To make sure you get the correct aspect ratio (1.765:1 for the 480×272 PSP screen), you may need to do cropping on the original video.

Step 5: Start transcoding.
Back to the PSP transcoder window. Once your PSP is connected to your PC, you will be notified of the status at the right bottom corner. If you start transcoding while PSP is connected, you will be asked whether to directly transcode into your PSP. You can set an output folder at the main window and choose No at this point if your want to transcode to your hard drive and then manually copy the result file to PSP (put the .pmp files in PSPVIDEO so that you can see them in PMP).

There you have it. Start enjoying your video!
