    Meteo'd a video of Enter Shikari from MPEG-1 to gba and flashed it to my EZ Flash 4...when i tried to run it i got 'not enough psram' >.< BAH!!

    I dont think i can make the vid any smaller so im thinking the only thing to do is find a way to get more PSRAM...is that even possible? Any programs that can act as an add on to my cart's PSRAM or something like that?

    Other than that if anyone has a solution i'd love to hear it! Otherwise i think that means i have a length cap on vids that go on my GBA =P

    Thanks

    I don't believe you can put more PSRAM onto it... Even if you tried to add it on, I don't think it will work/be compatible.

    split the movie in half so that each file is under the limit (i think 16MByte? not sure for that cart)

    Have you tried flashing it to Norflash?

    Off-topic, but make sure you're using Meteo 1.4.0, as it offers a few more options than 1.3.1 such as fast-forward and increased brightness.

    Press Select when highlighting the rom and it asks you "Write NOR Flash Y/N", press A to continue. The flashing to Norflash will take some time, but after say 2-4 minutes it'll be done.

    If you can't find Meteo 1.4.0, you can find it from this archived page.

    It's not as fully translated as the other one, so you'll want to have used 1.3.1 in the past so you know how to resize and crop correctly, but otherwise it's the better one to use since it supports more input video files and lets you change the brightness (very useful for old-style GBA systems).
