Guide to getting PiMP Streamer working on 2.01+ (Stream videos from your PC)
Its hard to find for the 2.6, I know, as trying to do this tutorial took a long time looking through google.
Right, I did this last night. For those of you who donít know about PiMP streamer for 2.01+ then go here: http://pimpware.pspstart.de/.
If you scroll down his blog you will find an article about the 2.6 version (Here) here there is a link to the downloadable version: Linked here for you.
Once you have downloaded that, read what the blog tells you to do. Just to put it a little clearer, here is what I did:
1. got the zip from the above link.
2. Browsed to the "windoze" file. Then unzipped all this to my desktop. If you run windows XP (not sure about others) you can just drag the file onto your desktop.
3. Browsed to the "PiMPSTREAMERV201" file (in the "2.x" folder NOT "1.5"). I then unzipped this to my PSP in this location: "E:/PSP/GAME/" (E:/ being the location of my PSPs memory stick on my PC). You can just drag and drop this again on XP.
4. Now, open the file "PiMPSTREAMERV201" on your PSP. There should be a file named "pmp.ini", open this in notepad. It should look like this:
con = 1;
enabled = 1;
uri = 192.168.1.41:3333;
debug = 0;
5. Now, just change the "192.168.1.41" bit to the IP address of the machine which will be running the "Windoze" program. Remember to leave the "3333" bit. If you donít know how to get this, just right click on your connection in the taskbar (XP users again) and click on status. On one of the tabs you should see your IP address.
6. Now open up the "Windoze" file on your desktop and click on the program file. This should load up the program.
7. in this program just browse to the files which contain your videos, nothing more.
8. on your PSP make sure you make a file in this location "E:/PSP/" called VIDEO and put something in here. I personally put the "output.avi" in the "windoze" folder as it is very small. The reason for doing this is because of a bug in the program hopefully to be fixed in the future.
9. Boot the PSP up using latest GTA loader with E-menu and then boot up PiMP Streamer. Then select the file location of your videos and then click on your videos.
10. Watch and enjoy
So far. I have had pretty jolty films, maybe itís my connection. I donít know, will try it again tonight. On the blog it does say that it is not running at full speed yet, but if you have pretty low quality films they seem to run pretty smooth.
If it doesnít work there are a few problems I encountered.
1. make sure that you do have a connection to your network set up on your PSP. Best way to do this is to go on the internet browser and set it up there. If you have more than one maybe itís trying to connect to an obsolete one (I donít know, I only have the one) so delete the un needed ones.
2. Make sure the port 3333 is forwarded on your router. This varies with each router largely. It took me a very long time to work out port forwarding on my router a long time ago.
3. Ensure no firewalls are blocking it.
4. Make sure you made the VIDEO file and make sure you put something in it. Without this, it simply wonít work. It should look like this: "E:/PSP/VIDEO/output.avi" (or at least mine does and it works).
5. donít increase the clock speed of your PSP on the e-menu before loading the PiMP Streamer. This caused me countless problems.
Hope this helps.
