PSPcasting – Like Broadcasting, but on PSP – Duh!

Conversion excursion for Sony handheld.

PSPcasting – Like Broadcasting, but on PSP – Duh!
Word has reached SPOnG of the nattily-titled PSP Video 9 from the same people responsible for the BitTorrent video distribution software Videora. The combination of PSP Video 9 with Videora enables owners of the Sony handheld to download video – utilising RSS and BitTorrent – and convert it to the PSP format. It all makes for simple conversion of regular video and audio files between PC and a PSP with a Memory Stick, and it’s free.

PSP Video 9 is in the beta stage at the time of writing, and is available as freeware at http://www.pspvideo9.com/

But given that the PSP can only receive this video, and not broadcast it, should this not be PSPeceiving, not PSPcasting.

Same with PodCasting too.

Er, what?

Given that the DS has to use an add-on to play movies, the PSP is ahead to start with.

This software interfaces directly with th PSP, whereas a DS equivalent would have to write to an SD card, requiring an SD reader/writer, another piece of additional hardware.

How do you think this is the PSP getting DS functionality?

Ah but "television broadcasting" broadcasts to televisions.

Logically, this is PSP narrowcasting, but people don't understand "narrowcasting" as a term, so we abbreviate the term to PSPcasting.

This can't happen to television since telecasting is playing a guitar.

I was just kinda refering to the fact that you can write your own video to a card of some kind and use it.

Useful stuff, whether for DS or PSP.

"Television broadcasting" broadcasts to television receivers. Commonly shortened to "television".

PSP is not a receiver. It's a player.

Applying the same post dot-com jargon-hungry logic would have called playing a video tape. VHSCasting.

So it's basically an add-on to a BitTorrent Client app that converts the video file to .mp4 automatically. I'll stick with Azureus and just get 3GP thanks.

If I'm not mistaken, the deal with PSP movies is that they are regular MPEG4-encoded files but in a proprietary Sony wrapper. Hence, it's slightly more useful than just auto-converting.

DS is much better

considering that that the DS has a wi-fi capability to play games and chat around the world and send and play videos and music it can do everything the psp does and more

so haha

DS has Wi-Fi, you're correct. It can be used to play games online and probably chat too. So can the PSP. The DS being capable of sending videos is a new one on me though.

The DS can play videos and music too, you're right, but with an external add-on and at a cost. How much? About £25 in Japan, which will translate to something higher if it ever reaches these shores. I could get a US PSP from dvdboxoffice.com for roughly £147, including postage.£95 would get me a DS there, but then I'd need a Play-Yan adapter at £25 and at least 32MB of memory to match up to the PSP value package. However, the lowest memory regularly sold is 128MB, which routinely goes for about £15. My DS that can now do everything that the PSP does suddenly costs £135. With some sources claiming that the Play-Yan movie clarity isn't up to that of the PSP, if I want to play movies on the move I think I'd be grabbing a PSP.

Of course, I'm now waiting to see what catches my fancy on both.

My understanding is that the PSP can only read mp4 files that follow a certain file naming convention, which 3GP does for you. I haven't tried it yet, so can't confirm.

My source is Edge issue 148, released a short while after the PSP's release. Again, I've not tried anything so I can't confirm.

LOL. Deadlock!

I'm really not that bothered either way. If all I have to do is put a standard media file through 3GP for conversion, then transfer it to PSP I'm a happy man. I should be receiving my 512Mb Duo card in a week or so, so I can give my verdict then.
