PSP-Studio from Manaccom allows PSP owners
to create their own movies for one of the best portable consoles around,
the PlayStation Portable. Whether you're away from home, taking a train
or just waiting for a friend, the PSP-Studio is a must have piece of
software for the PSP user if they wish to convert a wide myriad of movie
formats to their PSPs.
The installation of PSP-Studio was a breeze
and it simply auto-installed on both our Vista and Windows XP machines
without any issues whatsoever and once the installation was complete, we
were greeted to an extremely user friendly interface. Best of all, PSP-Studio
will convert any of the following movie formats; AVI, WMV, 3GP, MPEG-1,
MPEG-2, MPEG-4 (DivX® 3.11-6, XviD, Nero Digital™) or M-JPEG file.
Another issue with the PSP is the size of
your memory card, so fortunately for those users a little
confused about compressions and movie quality settings, PSP-Studio has a nifty little function
called "Fit To" which basically converts the file to how much space is
available on their memory stick.
For the more advanced users, they can customize
their own quality settings. PSP-Studio also allows the user to delete
certain sections of their movies such as the end credits etc, which is
great for maximizing the space available on your memory stick.
The conversion aspect does take some time,
depending on the compression format of the original file, especially AVI
files which are sometimes heavily compressed but in general, a hour
"movie" will take anywhere between 10 - 30 minutes which is also
governed by your computer speed.
feature of PSP-Studio is the ability of the "internet radio recorder"
that allows the user to record internet radio and convert them to make
it PSP friendly. A cute interesting feature but this aspect was a little
tricky to use.
In conclusion, PSP-Studio
is miles ahead of Sony's own media manager and we would happily
recommend PSP-Studio to PSP movie lovers. Easy to use, affordable and
