Picture of Downloading the Nessessary  Programs

To download vids and to put them to your psp you will need to have two programs .
The programs are PSP video express and orbit downloader,.
Just type them into google to find them !!

By the way i am assuming that you have the correct folders made on your MS Pro duo

Step 2: Downloading a Vid

Right click in the margin of your desired video and select grab by orbit then select ok . In a few secs time you would have dl the vid automatically. Congrats you have got the vid in flv format!! However to get it to your psp it needs to be in MP4 format . Thats when PSP video express comes in!

Step 3: Changing the Format to Be Compattible With PSP

Open up PSP video express and click on the add file button and find your vid . Your vid should be in a folder named downloads. Mine is in local disk C. (BTW when you add the file in PSP vid ex you need to drop down to all files )

Step 4: Cont

Once you have found the vid it should play and then you press on the record it button to record it to Mp4 format (When you press record thats when it starts recording )

GUYS! Stop flaming about how useless and terrible this is.. THIS WAS MADE 3 YEARS AGO IN 2007!!!! This was when there was no free youtube downloaders that worked. This was when psptube wasn't out. Just let this die

ForteZeroExcell (author)nicktl2008-07-05

just press record after you have opened up the file and wait for it to finish recording. Then a popup will well... pop up and it will tell you to transfer it to your psp. Click on that button and another popup will appear. Then click on your selected file on the popup and click tranfer to psp. You can also transfer the title image. Hope this helps!

ooooorrrrr.... you can go to any youtube page and in the location bar type pwn between www. and vid you are watching.. brings your to a site that lets you download that video in FLV or MP4 format.

geoffypi (author)2009-02-16

i think you can just download the vids strait off the internet from your psp wifi

jacksonhpeters (author)geoffypi2009-02-22

Gridnack572 (author)2008-12-01

just found a download site that allows you to copy the url from youtube and download it to your psp

click on this link to download "free youtube to ipod/PSP" :

Doctor What (author)2008-11-02

I don't mean to be mean or harsh, just a tip: If people need to use this ible, than they probably don't know how to do some of the things that you mentioned, like step one's "creating the proper folders". What do you name the folders, and where do you put them? Does the folder go in the root or does it go into the PSP folder, etc... Or step five, which, even though it may seem simple, noobz (sorry to use that term, for all noobz out there), they might find it confusing.

I still think PSP video 9 is so much more user friendly

struckbyanarrow (author)2008-08-04

i just got a psp for 24 cents on ebay its is in my hand and it works. ~~ + TEN DOLLARS SHIPPING ~~

Lucky I got mine 4 months after first release for around 200 euro but it was well worth it

animes25 (author)2008-01-02

there is a psp program that will make your psp able to watch the youtube videos in your own psp browser with no convertion is in beta right now wait just a few weeks

ForteZeroExcell (author)animes252008-01-03

You can watch youtube vids anyways! You just need to turn on the flash player on your psp and go to youtube on the internet

how do u turn on the flash player

system settings...I think sorry

Sorry to burst your bubble, but I tried that a looooong time ago and it didn't work. I got a notice that my flash version was too outdated to use youtube. And it's not because I don't upgrade either, I always get the newest firmware when it comes out and I try again.

The Flash memory built in is too small too handle videos anyway

neluz (author)2008-07-11

there is an much easier way just go to
you just have to fill in the ulr (website for the people that don't know this)and select what kind of you want like mpeg or mp4 or avi and it will be converted and then you can just download it

nicktl (author)2008-07-05

ForteZeroExcell (author)nicktl2008-07-05

belucky (author)2008-06-17

To downloading videos and music from any site try out the NetVideoHunter Firefox add-on here or here

SkKage (author)2008-01-25

it says i need to download dvd software any idea were i get that?

ForteZeroExcell (author)SkKage2008-01-26

Does it say something like video and audio not compatible ? If it does just close it and keep trying Sorry about that ... If that stll doesn't work try another video conversion software like PSPvideo9 .It's a free software to download!

rocksalt2342 (author)2008-01-24

use its a free online conversion that doesn't need any downloading.

Slashaar (author)2008-01-18

Does this make the videos all fuzzy like media manager does?

ForteZeroExcell (author)Slashaar2008-01-18

no it does not lose quality

Coffee bean (author)2008-01-08

it easier to use youtube to ipod

True but orbit can also be used to download other stuff. You can use orbit instead of the normal windows/mac/linux download aplications.

Shifrin (author)2008-01-03

Step one for me is get a PSP! LOL

ForteZeroExcell (author)Shifrin2008-01-03

By the way when you get a psp make sure to upgrade it using custom firmaware. Don't be an idiot like me and get the official firmware!!

Shifrin (author)ForteZeroExcell2008-01-03

Thanks for the Tip!

joedacoolguy (author)2008-01-03
