PSP, short for PlayStation Portable, is well known as a portable game console. If handheld gaming system is all you know about PSP, then you are totally wrong and you're not making the full use of it. Actually PSP is a powerful device. With it’s GPU encompassed high-end graphics design, it’s a perfect portable device for viewing videos and photos. As you know, many popular and wonderful movie in high quality are generally stored in DVDs, and we can enjoy the movies at home again and again. If you have a PSP, it would be great to play DVD collections on PSP wherever you want without network and device restrictions.

Though playing DVD videos on PSP is very attractive and convenient, the PSP, like other portable devices and operating systems, only supports a limited number of video formats. To play DVD videos on PSP more easily, it would be important to know which video formats that PSP is supported.


Part 1. PSP Supported Video Formats

Generally, Sony PSP supports special MP4 and AVI video. Here special means that MP4 and AVI are not the normal format that we usually used and known before. From the official website of Sony PSP, the PSP supports below video formats:

1. Memory Stick Video Format

* MPEG-4 Baseline Profile (AAC)

* H.264/MPEG-4 AVC Main Profile (CABAC) (AAC) and Baseline Profile (AAC)

2.  MP4 Formats

* MPEG-4 Baseline Profile (AAC)

* H.264/MPEG-4 AVC Main Profile (CABAC) (AAC) and Baseline Profile (AAC)

3.  AVI Formats

* Motion JPEG (Linear PCM)

* Motion JPEG (u-Law)

From the video formats listed above, you may get confused about those supported formats. All are not as well-known as a lot of popular videos like MKV, WMV, FLV, MOV formats. Therefore it would be impossible if we want to play DVD on PSP directly. To make the DVD videos available to play on PSP, we may need to find a DVD ripper for help. With a professional DVD ripper, we can rip DVDs and convert DVD to many types of video formats for playback on PSP.
