Eric and I were comparing video playback on my Dell Axim X50V Pocket PC and his Sony PSP.
The screen on the PSP is undeniably beautiful, and makes video look great. I only wish it wasn’t such a pain to get video onto the PSP. It has to be in a special format (MPEG4), with a special (cryptic) filename, and placed in a special (cryptic) folder on the PSP’s Memory Stick. It’s such a hassle that a cottage industry for apps that take your video and automate all of those steps has sprung up.
Why can’t we just drop our movies, in common codecs like DivX, WMV, Quicktime, etc. into a folder called “Video” on the Memory Stick, and be able to play them? That’s how Music and Photos are handled – simple and efficient. It’s frustrating that Sony made video so much more complicated.
