    Hi,
    I have a sony PSP I'm trying to use with my mac (tiger). I can add pics just fine. But am unable to add video to the PSP. It doesnt even seem to have a video folder. Does anyone know how I can convert quicktime files to mpeg 4 and get them on the psp where they are useable via mac?

    thanks
    chris

    Umm, you do it within Quicktime 7, Quicktime itself converts to MPEG4. However, you need to purchase Quicktime Pro to unlock these features.

    Adding video to your psp is a pain if you do it manually. Firstly the files have to be strictly named MVN02034.avi or something.

    I use PSPWare to convert my videos and manage my saved games/photos etc.

    Theres a free trial available, and if you decide you like it its only $15. Bargain :)

    :EDIT: BTW you don't need quicktime for this. It uses its own compressor.

    Yup, PSPware is cool. Forget the PSP for a second though, I still recommend you upgrade to Quicktime 7 Pro, so you can do things as advanced as...............................................watching videos in full screen :rolleyes:

    Which you can do in VLC, for free, AND you get the added bonus of being able to play just about any video file.

    Still if you DO want quicktime pro, £20 really is cheap as chips! I've noticed Mac software all seems to be really reasonably priced. Theres no need to steal software any more woooo :)
