    Streaming From Your PSP To Your PC.


    This guide shows how to stream gameplay from your PSP to your PC, to record and share.
    It's not just games, pretty much anything that happens on your PSP can be streamed.

    This works with any model PSP as it uses the USB port, not video-out.
    This requires a 5.x or 6.x Custom Firmware that can use plugins.

    This has been tested on 32-bit XP, and 32/64-bit Vista/7.
    Support for 64-bit XP is untested so far.



    Installing the plugin.
    1. First you need to determine your firmware version.
      WARNING! Spoilers inside!
    2. Download whichever file matches your version.

      [IMG] RemoteJoyLite - 5.x
      [IMG] RemoteJoyLite - 6.x
      (For 6.6x CFWs, grab the 6.x, then grab this version and overwrite the 6.x with the 6.6x files.)
      It's also suggested you update the downloaded copy with this bugfix.
      [IMG] Fixed

      Open the download and grab the RemoteJoyLite.prx file.
    3. Connect your PSP to your PC with a USB cable, and browse the memory stick.

      Find or make the seplugins folder and open it, place the RemoteJoyLite.prx file inside it.
    4. If they don't already exist, make three text files.

      Name the first one GAME, the second one POPS, and the third one VSH.
      [IMG]
    5. Determine when you're going to use this plugin.

      If you want it active while in a PSP game or homebrew, modify GAME in the next step.
      If you want it active while in a PS1/PSX game, modify POPS in the next step.
      If you want it active while in the PSP menus or PSN store, modify VSH in the next step.
      It's perfectly fine to have it active in more than one (or all three).
    6. Modify the text file to add and enable the plugin.

      Open the text file and add this line.

      CODE
      ms0:/seplugins/RemoteJoyLite.prx 1 Each line in each text file lists the location of a plugin's main .prx file, and whether it's enabled or not. A 1 means it's enabled, while a 0 means it's disabled. If you intend to use this with POPS (PSX/PS1 games), you'll need to add another line as well, at the top. This needs to be the first line.


      CODE
      flash0:/kd/usb.prx 1

      NOTE: PSP Go users should use EF0: instead of ms0: in their text files.
    7. Disconnect your PSP, restart it fully and go to the recovery menu to make sure the plugin was activated.

      For some firmwares you can press Select at the main menu to get an option to go to the recovery menu, but for others you'll need to turn your PSP fully off, then turn it back on while holding the R trigger to get into the recovery menu. Once in the recovery menu go to the Plugins section to see a list of which plugins are listed where, and which are active. You should see RemoteJoyLite in the proper section, and it should be enabled.
      [IMG]
    8. (Optional) Raise the PSP's clock rate to eliminate slowdown.

      Within the recovery menu there should be a section to change the CPU speed/clock. Most games run at 222mhz, but the PSP can be optionally clocked up to 333mhz (which is not used normally because the PSP runs hotter and sucks more battery power). If you notice that the game you're playing is a little slow when streaming to the PC, you can raise the clock rate and it should fix it.

    Preparing the drivers.
    Depending on your edition of Windows, this can be simple, or annoying.


    XP Users
    WARNING! Spoilers inside!


    Vista/7 Users
    WARNING! Spoilers inside!





    Installing The Drivers
    1. Put your PSP into the mode that you set it to record in earlier.

      If this was POPS, start a PS1/PSX game.
      If this was GAME, start a PSP game.
      If this was VSH, leave it at the main menu.
    2. Connect your PSP to your PC.
    32-bit XP Users

    WARNING! Spoilers inside!

    Everybody Else
    WARNING! Spoilers inside!


    When the drivers are installed Windows makes copies in it's system folder, so feel free to delete all the stuff you've downloaded up to this point.



    Using RemoteJoyLite
    1. Download the client and unzip it somewhere.

      [IMG] RemoteJoyLite Client
    2. Run RemoteJoyLite_en.exe.

      If your PSP has connected, you should see your PSP screen!
      [IMG]
      If your PSP's not connected in the proper mode or something went wrong, the screen will be black.
    3. Right-click in the screen to access the settings, and go to the Capture tab.

      Make sure that Enable AVI Capture is checked, and also check Enable WAV Capture.
      [IMG]
    4. Unfortunately the USB cable doesn't transfer audio like this, so you'll need to do something else for sound.

      Hook one end of a double-ended audio cable to your PSP's mic jack, and the other end to your Microphone or Line-In jack.
      [IMG]
    5. To record, press F12 in the RemoteJoyLite window, and a little [REC] symbol should appear in the corner.

      Press F12 again when you want to stop recording.
      Recordings are saved in the Capture folder.

      Recordings are uncompressed by default, which is fast but takes up a huge amount of space.
      You will want to compress/convert the recordings to something like MP4 (x264 or such) with
      a video converter before you upload them onto Youtube or do whatever you do with them.

    I love you for this. Wish you had done it sooner though XD. btw with this you can also use a game controller to control your psp so for those of you who are running motion joy on your pc you can basically play it with the controller and map the buttons as you wish. It makes MGS PW MUCH more enjoyable imo especially with the dual analogs [IMG]

    Yeah I would have done it sooner, but ever since I updated to 64-bit 7 weeks ago I hadn't been able to find a 64-bit Type-B driver, and once I found one I had to test it, and then get XP in a VM only to find that Microsoft's VM wouldn't let me file transfer to XP Home so I needed to install Pro and do network sharing of a drive to the VM and all this crap, next time I'm just gonna' install VMware...

    I might still have my 64 bit driver ill post it as an attachment later and to run it your gonna have to disable driver enforcement by pressing (f8 i think?) as windows is booting to get into advance boot options. That allows you to install what ever drivers you need at the moment. cause the dseo thing never worked for my motion joy [IMG]

    That's the driver for the PS3 controller for the PC, it's not the PSP Type-B driver.

    I've heard the Line-In jack can give better results than the Mic jack, but this depends on your computer and it's recording volume levels for that device and possibly other factors.

    I have a little problem with this, not recording wise, but sound wise.

    When I record, my sound get's all fuzzy and scewy, but after I'm done recording, the sound sounds perfectly fine!

    What's wrong?

    Try using Line-In instead of the Mic jack, I've found that can fix distortion issues.

    You may need to temporarily disable UAC.
