Showing Movies on a Playstation Portable



You can use Linux to load movies on your a Playstation Portable (PSP) gaming console.

Although Sony doesn’t like to admit it, one of the reasons for the success of Portable Playsta tions (PSPs) is that creative users can teach the gaming console new tricks. One of these tricks gives you the ability to copy movies to the PSP and take them with you on trips. This trick is possible because another Sony product, the "Memory Stick PRO," which Sony de signed for storing music and images, will also store movies. Of course, Sony would prefer to sell you DVDs of the movies, but a few in ventive hackers have discovered how to convert movies to PSP format. The sticks with two or even four GB storage capac ity give you enough space to store a whole movie. To do this, you need the "right" firmware (that is the older ver sion), and an application for converting movies to PSP format.
