Stream video (DivX, XviD etc.) to PSP without having to encode first

Stream video (DivX, XviD etc.) to PSP without having to encode first We have added another guide to our guide section; this time showing how to use PiMPStreamer to stream video files to a PlayStation Portable (PSP) over a wireless network. PiMPStreamer processes the files on-the-fly while streaming so it takes away the need to encode first and transfer to Memory Stick, so it is useful for things you might want to view on your PSP in your home and supports a large amount of file formats.
Stream multimedia files to PSP without encoding:

Visit PiMPStreamer site and download from:

Hopefully this guide will help any of you who are interested. Note that you do need a PSP with either 1.50 firmware or homebrew-friendly customer firmware for this to work. Since we don't usually cover PSP homebrew, any tips, criticisms, suggestions or complaints of any kind can be sent directly to me via Private Message (you need to be logged in).

I was looking for something like this too but for my 360 since I don't have media center 2. But I heard of a program called TVersity which also allows you to stream all sorts of media, photos, and music for the PSP and 360. Keep your mind open to venture out and use other programs.
