MediaImporter – Video importer for the PSVita


I'm a girl that's liked technology from day 1. Mostly interested in the PSVita/PSP scene but I've always modded my stuff when it's possible, that is :)Contact me via DM at @KawaiiAuroraA on Twitter if you have any questions/concerns about my articles or if you have any article requests.

    The way Sony stupidly handles multimedia with their devices is explicitly why I left their official ecosystem and after the Vita, I am 100% done with Sony because of their continued stupidity. So, I’m quite happy to see this. Shame Sony chose not to make more money by providing common sense 21st century multimedia solutions with their devices.

      In the 21st century, Apple is the largest electronics company in the world and all of their devices do not have any other transfer solutions.

      So the grand majority of the world population do not sure your OCD.

        I know that you’re just trolling, but Apple’s mobile market share is barely something like 15% and android holds 80%+
        IPhone/Pad aren’t really anything else than expensive toys and this is their main selling point, not functionality. (Well… and encryption if you are terrorist or pedophile I guess?)
        On the topic:
        I always get happy when I see that people are still supporting vita 🙂 However “unless it’s in some obscure format”… Vita supports pretty much support only H.264 Base/Main/High Profile 4:2:0 up to 3.1 (and even 3.1 is arguable, since it lags after 15Mbps, let aside 17.5Mbps) and only in mp4 container with audio below 256kbps (hint: music takes 300-450).
        Combine it with the cancerous chroma up-scaling, lack of proper dithering and it’s pretty much useless for videos in 2017.

          Market share means jack all. That Android 80% of marketshare isn’t even enough to beat the profits generated that 15% you quote. And then there’s higher revenue per device generated from apps and content. Suffice to say Android only enjoys the higher marketshare simply because they are priced cheaply enough for most people in the world to afford, but do not confuse their desire to buy Apple if given a free choice.

    Wasn’t this already possible with VitaShell?
    I’m a bit confused right now..
    I’ve allways imported media to the database with VitaShell, so were is the use in this?

    • cnsldv says:

      * VitaShell doesn’t import videos only music/pics (at least as far as I can see)
      * importing music in VitaShell makes a copy and takes ages, MediaImporter imports >10 MP3s a second
      * making stuff is fun and it’s useful to me

      Don’t worry, I won’t force you to use it

        Don’t worry, i didn’t attacked you..
        No need to defend yourself..
        The article was written like nothing from it was ever possible, so I asked.
        * I’ve never tried with videos, therefore i didn’t know that
        *I didn’t have any problem that it “takes ages” , only 1 hour + music needed some time, but still not too long, and far from “ages”
        * I know. Like I said, I didn’t attack you, just wondered about how this article is written

    Why doensn’t anyone release their application with a -hashfile code?

    would immediately solve the credibility issues,

  7. Be awesome if VLC was ported to vita! ;)p
