Read e-books, watch TV and play free games on your PSP
Sony may make it hard to realize the full potential of your Sony PSP, but they sure know how to make hardware. So when you have a gadget you really love, it's time to test the boundaries and find ways to do the unexpected.
Popular Science treats us to some simple instructions for reading e-books, watching video on your PSP, or playing some SNES or "homebrew" cloned games.
To read e-books you just convert text into images you can read on the PSP. The suggested software is PSPphoto. You can even get RSS feeds using MioMediaBox .
The instructions look pretty generic for compressing video files. Programs suggested include:
* PSP Video 9 (free, for Windows)
* ffmpegX (free for Mac)
* iPSP ($20 Mac or PC)
* XilisoftDVD to PSP Suite ($45 Windows)
Convert to a memory stick file at 320x240 resolution, and 15fps, and you're set!
To play the video games:
Download the games zip file here which also includes a SNES emulator and some ROMs. Run KXploit from the zip file here and you're well on your way.
