mediAvatar PSP Converter FAQ

Q: I want to change some settings of conversion. Where can I found them?

A: All the settings of the software can be found on the right panel of the main interface. After you highlight the file you load and select the output format, the settings that can be changed will be active, such as the "Frame Rate", "Sample Rate", "and Video/Audio Bit rate" and so on. Some of them are in dropdown lists and some of them can be changed just by entering a concrete number.

Q: I have a video file. I hope that it is in a new name after conversion. But it would be not convenient for me to rename the output files each time after conversion. Is your program able to help me with this issue?

A: No problem. On the right panel of the main interface, you can find an item called "File name". After your file is loaded, please highlight it in the program. And then, enter the name you want for the final output file in this field and press "Enter" to confirm. After the conversion is done, the content you input for this field will be the title of the output file.

Q: What about if I convert a file into same format several times saving in the same output folder without setting different output names respectively? Will your program just overwrite the previous conversion? It will be nice if it can save the output files in different titles automatically.

A: In the V3.1, it can just do this job. Please open "Tools-Preference" and select "Not Overwrite" there. Generally, it is the default option.
For example, if your file is called "movie.3gp" and you want to convert it to AVI format, after the first conversion job, the output file will be named as "movie.avi". If you do the same conversion job again, our program will generate a file, called "movie-0.avi". And also, if you perform a third conversion, the third output file will be "movie-1.avi". It means it will produce files in different titles each time in this way.

Q: I notice that you add an item in the "File" menu of the program, "Add DirectShow Files". What does it do? It seems that it is same with "Add", which just load the files into the program.

A: We add DirectShow decoder into the program, which provides a much more stable way to decode Microsoft files. If you load a Microsoft file into the program by DirectShow option, it will be converted better than common way. For example, for some WMV files, the output would not be sync sometimes. But it will not happen if you load them by DirectShow option.

Q: Where can I found the output files after the conversion?

A: After our software shows "complete" for the conversion job, please click "Open" button which can be found at the bottom of the main interface. You will reach the destination folder directly, from where you will find the output files for your conversion job. Generally, the default destination folder for our program is "C:Temp".

Q: When I play the loaded files in your program, I found that the video quality is not good enough and even the audio is not OK sometimes. Will it affect the final output files?

A: Our software is just a conversion tool. The preview function would be limited by certain files which are not in common codec. So the preview of the original file would not be perfect in certain conditions. But it will not affect the conversion, which means the output file should still be OK.

Q: I have many files to convert. How can I import them simultaneous? It means I want to import many files by one time.

A: You'd better put all your files into one folder and open it with our software. Multi-selection is available by pressing "CTRL" key and highlighting them at same time. Actually, our software supports "dragging to load". It means you can select all the files you want to convert in the Windows and then drag them into the program. Our software will get them loaded automatically. It is quite convenient.

Q: After I make some proper modifications on settings, is it possible to save it as a single profile so that I can use it directly each time?

A: It can be done by the "Save As" button. After you finish the modifications, please click this button and finish other jobs following instructions. After the profile is created, you can delete or re-name it as you like.

Q: I just want a clip/segment of my video files. Is it possible?

A: Yes. You need set "Start Time" and "Duration" to get the clip you want. First of all, you should highlight the loaded file in the program. And then enter correct values for "Start Time" and "Duration", which can be found on the right panel of the interface For example, if you want a 3-minute-clip from the 10 minutes of the whole movie, please enter "00:00:00" for "Start Time" and "00:03:00" for duration.

Q: After I convert my video files to PSP, what should I do to get the output files transferred to my PSP properly so that I can watch the movie on it? Do I need to rename them?

A: We offer a small tool in the "Tool" menu of the program. It can help you transfer files, both mp4 and THM into PSP easily and properly. The Manager program will help you rename the files automatically so that PSP will recognize them.

Q: I have properly connected my PSP with my PC and my PC has recognized my PSP as removable drive. But when I select it in the PSP Video Manager, the Manager will still show "Your selected drive is not a PSP". Why?

A: Please check the folder path on your PSP. If you have connected it successfully and your PC has recognized it as a removable drive, please open it through your PC. You should be able to find a folder called PSP on it. And in the PSP folder, you should have two sub-folders, MUSIC and PHOTO. Please have a check. If you do not have such a path, please create it yourself. Maybe you have deleted them before.

Q: I have successfully transferred the output PSP files to my PSP with PSP Video Manager. But it says "Corrupt Data" when I try to watch them on my PSP. Why?

A: Did you modify certain settings in the conversion job, such as "Frame Rate", video "Bit Rate" and audio "Sample Rate", etc? If it is so, you must not enter a value of your own in this situation. You should only use those which we have offered in the drop-down list. The values we offered are what PSP can support. If you enter other numbers, PSP will not recognize the output files.

Q: Should the PSP audio files, MP3, be also transferred by certain Manager programs?

A: No. Please just copy MP3 files into the "MUSIC" folder, one of the sub-folders under "PSP" folder. For example, if the removable drive number for your PSP is "F", please copy them into "F:PSPMUSIC". If you can not find it, please create such a path yourself.

Q: I want to convert some VOB files, which I load into the program from the "Video_TS" folder of a standard DVD. But I either get a "Fail" notice or a bad, not complete conversion result. Why?

A: Our software, PSP Converter, is just a video conversion tool, so it will not do a good job on DVD conversion. If you can remove the encryption of the DVD by other third-party program, such as DVD Decryptor, our software will be able to convert the decrypted VOB files. But if you want to convert DVDs directly, you should try our DVD tools, such as DVD Ripper, which can convert DVDs including the protected ones directly into mpeg, AVI as well as many other video formats.
