There are many podcasts on PSP available. Some of

them simply share information on the PlayStation

Portable and distribute it to people interested in portable

gaming. These podcasts serve as news organizations,

sharing audio or visual files talking about the

PlayStation Portable and speculating about updates to

the PSP. The vast majority, however, take advantage of

the ability of the PlayStation Portable’s ability to

download and play quality videos on the gaming screen.

Developers of the program PSP Video 9 first created a

program that could change videos from computer types

like .avi and .mpeg to the format used by the Play

Station Portable.

Once that was done, it was quickly possible to create

podcasts for the PSP. Podcasters began creating video

files, changing them to a format readable by the

PlayStation Portable, and distributing them by podast

feed. These podcast feeds are subscribed to by people

interested in the feed, who download the episodes as

they come out. After the video files are transfered to the

PlayStation Portable, they can be viewed whenever the

end user wishes, just like the other movies and

professionally done videos available for the PSP. The

PlayStation Portable has thus been changed from simply

being a portable gaming platform to a piece of full

featured media hardware capable of playing games,

storing information, and playing videos and movies,

moving toward a more complex future.
