PSP-Studio

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.

Another interesting 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 highly recommended!

Benefits of PSP-Studio:

  • PSP-Studio is easy to use and takes care of the details for you with automatic selections.

  • Getting that one must-have video onto your PSP won’t be an issue anymore.† Now you can watch that funny clip on the way to work; or kick back with a movie if you’re in the middle of nowhere bored out of your brain.

  • If you can’t afford large memory sticks you can still have that full-length movie for your PSP. Use PSP-Studio’s Split function to separate the movies onto smaller sized memory cards.

  • When cropping your file, you’ll know exactly which frame to set your crop marks at because there’s a handy little preview window in PSP-Studio so you can playback your movie before you convert.
