    i wish the .avi format was supported

    • HaloFreak says:

      It’s not hard to find converters though… Yeah, it’s a little more work, but it still gets the job done so you can watch it.

      • stormwyrm says:

        Sheesh, the reason why this interests me is that I potentially shouldn’t have to keep converting all my stuff. If I still have to do that, then it’s pointless. I might as well convert to native PSP MP4 format and use the built-in player instead, which actually has a pretty good interface. I suppose this could be useful for 480p Matroska videos and the like though.

    • ziyad says:

      hey there are psp apps which play .avi files.i am using them for a long doesnt have a good interface but still it saves u converting time and effort.

  2. Samir says:

    hey sigmus26. have you tried it cause the previous versions did? If you did then this is very sad news…

  3. randell1993 says:

    I just wish this can play 720p it only plays the vids with the same screen size as psp T_T

  4. Samir says:

    EVERYONE: the files in the .rar have not been folded.


    Then please drag the contents of the rar into that folder.

    If you have any problems feel free to ask.

  5. madara says:

    init failed, press x to exit..pls help

  6. DarkChaplain says:

    I hope they can implement subtitle support in some future version… audio stream switching is a cool thing, but without subtitle support you could as well hardcode the video into mp4 all over again..

  8. Asim says:

    Hey people! View this website i founD! Its really cool- there are any soft and game downloads for psp!

  9. Deepak Vishnu says:

    Ok Boys And girls i will tell you how to make this wonderful homebrew work in all firmware.

    FIRST: It works in all CFW,LCFW,HEN(Anything that allows homebrews to run on psp),
    IT WORK ON ALL 1G,2G,3G,4G,5G,6G,7G,8G,9G PSP MODELS(1000,2000,3000,PSPGO)So dont ask if it works in your psp etc.IT WILL NOT RUN IN OFW(Sony’s Official Firware).

    SECOND:THIS Download provided in PSH in only an update.(Which must be copied to the base software in order for this to work)THIS IS WHY YOU GET INIT FAIL ERROR

    THIRD:You need PPA base homebrew(software) its name is PPA(fw3.xx).

    FOURTH:Download The Base homebrew.GIVEN IN 3rd STEP.
    copy the whole ppa folder inside the rar/zip to the game folder of your psp(ms0:\psp\game\)
    Now the Memstick show look similarly like this
    or like
    ef0:\psp\game\PPA3.xx on the pspgo

    FIFTH:Download the new update given in PSH and copy and replace the contents into the PPA3.xx folder on your psp

    • AskMan says:

      Hey dude, i got a problem here, i managed to get the homebrew work, but every time i select the video, and says “Loading…” it just goes back to the browse window. i hope you can help me. thanks. :D

  11. Asim says:

    Hey thanx man! Now every one if you need movies, soft or games(iso, cso), Cfw,Hen then go to

  12. PSP4ever says:

    Thanks for new update and great work guys=D

  13. FUCKING PMPlayer says:

    this damage my left speaker when i my boost.prx is on and then try this then put the volume up then i play a move my left psp speaker just damage fuck.

  14. madara says:

    why is it keeps on going back on file selection window? movies doesnt there any conversion for this?

  15. se7en says:

    Good thing about this player is you can hide your secret videos into a random folder which will not appear on the built in video player, and using this player you can just browse and watch it. I dont know why some users cannot get this to work when all you need to do is put the PPA folder inside PSP?GAME.

  16. Random User says:

    And here I was thinking that I was just too stupid to get it to work all this time.

  17. shinja says:

    does the 6.35 prob5 supports this?

  18. madara says:

    i made the program to run..just dont know why the movie is not there any problem with the type of file? it said it supports flv, mp4 and mkv, i have these files but it doesnt play..any advice?

    • madara says:

  26. Baka Sensei says:

    Well i just did like they said.
    i went to:
    downloaded bout the PPA 3.0.6 and then unrar on e:\psp\game
    they download the FIX and unrar on the same folder (you have to overwrite some files but its ok)
    and done…. (or so i thought)
    well the player runs and play videos under those settings
    but if you try to open a .mp4 file that’s bigger it appears the “Loading..” and the it goes back to the main player screen
    to bad i cant open my anime files
    60mb file, 23min, 640:480 aspect, 23.976 frames, NO SUBTITLES (its already on the video

  38. thedude321 says:

    For those who are getting the “init failed” dialog. Please do the following:

    1 – Go to this site –
    2 – Press “Ctrl” + “F”  and then type in “all”
    3 – Download the latest version of the link that is highlighted. In my case it was “Download ppa.all.en.fw3xx.3.0.6(20091001)” or just go to this link –
    4 – Then download the latest EBOOT file – something like “Download ppa.eboot.en.fw3xx.3.1.5(20110421)”
    5 – Extract all the files from the all rar file, and you should see a folder called PPA3xx.
    6 – Now extract the eboot folder.
    7 – Copy and paste all the contents of the eboot folder into the PPA3xx folder.
    8 – Copy and paste the PPA3xx folder into PSP/GAMES
    9 – Go to your memory stick option in the games section and you should see PMPlayer Advance somewhere in there.

  43. Ins|der says:

    scheme below is not working

  44. Reese Matthews says:

    My videos dont even show up 

  45. Si vas a usar el PMP Player en 6.XX debes copiar el archivo

    “cooleyesBridge.prx” en la carpeta del homebrew, que es:


    Y sustituir el archivo existente.

    El mejor convertidor para el PMPPlayer el ((XviD4PSP)) convertir en formato pmp
    ya que queda mas comprimido con excelente calidad de audio y video.
    El cual estoy suviendo y se encuentra en la misma pagina de descarga..
