Released in the second quarter of 2004, PSP remains to be the most influential products provided by Sony. With years of evolution, there are five generations of PSP so far, ranging from PSP 1000 to PS Vita. Of course, the latest generation of PSP can always provide users better gaming and entertaining experience. In fact, as a game console, PSP is able to take full advantages of state-of-art games from Sony; as a multimedia tool, PSP turns out to be a mini version computer which sports excellent display and built-in Wi-Fi. However, a pity thing for all PSP users is that they are not allowed to play YouTube video on PSP directly.
Video entertainment plays an important role in people’s entertaining life and YouTube is the main source for video entertainment. As a consequence, the absence of YouTube support has made Wi-Fi connection a wasted function in PSP. Are there any methods to play YouTube video on PSP? In fact, users are trying hard to look for methods to view YouTube video on PSP and they are lucky enough to find some. Here two methods will be provided to help users play YouTube video on PSP.
Method One: Install GoTube on Sony PSP
By installing third-party apps, users are allowed to enjoy YouTube video on PSP. Even though Adobe Flash Player seems to be the best choice in theory, it fails to function because the Flash Player version on PSP is far less lower that the required version on YouTube. Currently speaking, an app named GoTube seems to be the only choice left for users. As a Java based program, GoTube provides users accesses to famous online websites like YouTube.
To make the application work, users only need to install GoTube under the folder of GAME. To choose the right YouTube video for viewing, click “Select” button to switch to YouTube, “X” button to type in the keyword and “O” button to play the YouTube movie on Sony PSP. However, GoTube is not an application that fits all generation of Sony PSP. Moreover, it may face the same fate of PSPTube who went outdated after ceasing to provide users latest update.
Method Two: Convert YouTube movie to PSP video
Another method for users to enjoy YouTube movie on Sony PSP is to convert YouTube movie to PSP video. In this way, users are not only allowed to view YouTube video on every generation of Sony PSP, but also to watch YouTube video on PSP without Wi-Fi connection. Of course, to make sure the conversion works, a powerful YouTube movie to PSP video converter like Moyea SWF to PSP Converter is highly desired.
Step 1: Opening the YouTube video one desired to play on Sony PSP, click “Share” tab, choose “Embed” button and then check “Use old embed code” box. Find the embed code and copy the first part of the URL address.
Step 2: Download and launch Moyea SWF to PSP Converter. Open it and choose “From URL” in the drop-down menu of “Browser…” button. Paste the copied URL address to the corresponding bar and click “OK” button.
