A few people have asked me to help them put movies onto PSP, so here is a guide. Since PSP cannot play the kind of movies you’d download from the internet, you have to convert them first
The easiest way to do so is by using FFMPEG, simply execute the following command:
ffmpeg -y -i INPUTFILE -flags +bitexact -vcodec libx264 -profile:v baseline -level 3.0 -s 480x272 -r 29.97 -b:v 384k -acodec aac -b:a 96k -ar 48000 -f psp -strict -2 OUTPUTFILE.MP4
If you want to, you can generate a thumbnail as well:
ffmpeg -i INPUTFILE -f image2 -ss 5 -vframes 1 -s 160x120 OUTPUTFILE.THM
That’s it. Now simply put the file(s) to your VIDEO folder and enjoy!
