    Have a bunch of movies encoded for the iPod touch. I assumed that since the PSP supports h.264 and mpeg4, there would be no problem playing them on my PSP (CFW 5.00 m33-6). I assumed wrong (or I'm doing it wrong..) - the PSP says it's "unsupported data".

    Quicktime lists the following properties for one of the movies:
    Format: H.264 480x270, Millions
    AAC, Stereo(L R), 48.000 kHz
    Movie FPS: 29.97
    Playing FPS: 29.97
    Data size: 482.26MB
    Data rate: 740.75 kbits/sec

    Any idea why it won't play?

    Nope, the PSP uses a different format than iPod (just because they both use h.264 and mpeg4 doesn't mean they're the same).
    Here's a free converter to use: http://www.pspvideo9.com/

    I personally reccomend this. It's a fantastic app for PC that will convert to any given format. If I recall, it even supports DVDs!

    Problem with converting is it takes a significant amount of time.. is there a video format that both the iPod touch and the PSP would support?

    ACK.. used a different program called WinFF (already had it installed to convert videos for iPod classic) to convert to PSP format.. PSP complains the converted video is "unsupported data" (facepalm) [​IMG]
