How To Download Music Videos For Your PSP-Easily!

Get the Hardware Right!

The first thing you need to look at when thinking about downloading music videos to your PSP is the memory capacity. Your PSP should have an inbuilt memory size of 64 Mb, in addition you should also have a 32 Mb memory card which will have been supplied when you purchased it. In addition you should consider, if you haven’t already done so, purchasing a larger capacity memory disk, these range from 1 Gb to 4 Gb.

Compression Software Next

You should also consider the possibility of getting some compression software to work with the PSP so as you can store a lot more music videos. You could look at dbpoweramp to do the compression for you but lets not get into too much detail here about “technicalities”.

The fact is that the more prepared you are from a hardware point of view then the more seamless downloading music videos to your PSP is going to be.

Once you have the PSP “sorted” then it’s time to move on to making sure that your PC is suitably set up to help transfer the music videos.

As a minimum, you’re going to need a DSL Internet connection to enable fast downloads to your PC. Ideally you will have a USB cable to connect directly from the PC to the PSP. At this stage, the PSP should be off.

Once the PC is connected to the PSP, you will need to turn on the PSP. The PC will then recognize the PSP as new hardware. Once this is done you will need to press X this allows the desktop on the PC to recognize this as a volume with no title.

Next, you will need to to access the memory card of the PSP and search for the folder named “PSP”. Within this PSP folder there will be four sub-folders and these are videos, games, saved data and the last one is photos.

You May Need Conversion Software!

The next step is to create a new folder and name it “MP-ROOT”, so you will now have five folders in total. You should then create a sub-folder of MP-Root and name it 100 MNV01, this is a standard file name to ” house” the music video that you wish to download. This step is important as video files are nearly always in MP 4 format and the PSP player only plays MP3 format files this means that the MP 4 files must be converted to play on the PSP player.

This conversion of the DVD files or music video files can be done on the PC before transfer. Once conversion has occurred then it is a relatively simple process to download these videos or any DVD to your PSP.

Is there any easier method?

The simple answer is yes. There are sites on the net which are dedicated to PSP downloads and these are commonly referred to unlimited download sites. One of the major benefits to the reputable sites in this sector is that they provide, or at least as a minimum should provide, software that will enable you to convert any format of any music video so as it can be played on your PSP.

In fact, many of these PSP download sites have extensive tutorials on how to effectively download videos, DVDs, games and music which means that it has been made relatively simple and straightforward for you to download media into your PSP. The additional benefits of these sites is that they have fast download speeds, files are free of viruses, and there is a massive choice of current and older music videos, tunes and even movies.

You may be thinking that these sites are going to cost a small fortune however, you will be pleasantly surprised to find that they are usually no more than $35 for a lifetime membership and unbelievably this includes the ability to download an unlimited number of files.

So, if you’re looking to download music videos you should at least check out some of the best and most reputable unlimited download sites available on the market.

Planning Your Music Career

The Challenge. We study and practice. Yet the question remains, “What now?” How do I make a musical connection to others? How do I apply my skills to real-world experiences? It’s frustrating that the craft of drumming, and the landscape of the music business is not an exact science. But there are things you can do; steps you can take; and changes you can implement to take you out of the practice room and into the music business. Let’s start by planning and then by taking a look at your goals.

Take stock. Examine your musical and professional experiences and goals. Where are you in your music career? How many shows do you play a year? Do you have the network you need to achieve your goals? Do you have any network at all? What do you want to be doing next month or next year? Are you on the outside looking in? If so, what must change? This type of personal assessment will be different for everyone depending on your hopes and dreams. Allow yourself the time for this evaluation. Perhaps even do some research. Be very clear about the type of drummer you are, and the types of playing at which you shine. Taking an honest look at your present situation will save time now and perhaps avoid future disappointment. It will also pave the way for your next step.

Find your pigeonhole. Have a concise, truthful answer prepared to the “What kind of drummer are you?” question. Once you’ve decided, stick to the answer and tell people that answer when they ask! For drummers, this seems to go against our very core. We are taught to be well rounded and versatile. We should be open to many musical styles. However, it is also important to realize that fellow musicians, band mates, the music industry, even your local bartender, will classify you as a certain kind of drummer. For example, think of a drummer that you do not know personally, but one whose work you admire. What kind of drummer is he? If you had to put him in one musical category, what would it be? You see? We do it to others, and others will do it to us.

If you do not pigeonhole yourself, others may do it for you. For example, suppose you consider yourself a heavy metal drummer. Your band recently returned from a successful tour. You have several weeks before your band tours again. To pay the rent, you accept a six-week gig, playing a show at a local dinner theater. Because you are now working at a dinner theater, are you a show drummer? The outside world may see it that way if you let them. However, if you have already established yourself as a heavy metal drummer, the theater gig will only help you appear accomplished and versatile. Remember to decide your category honestly, and then stick to it, no matter what kinds of jobs you are doing. Soon, others will describe you by using your own phrase. If you do not take the time to type cast yourself, to pigeonhole your career, you are leaving your legacy open to the random interpretation of your peers. Now that you have your place in the music world, it is time to make something happen.

3 Do-Able Steps to Shift Your Mood in 5 Minutes or Less!

Music can uplift your day, but can it really change your day? Recent research indicates that the structured use of music is an effective way to manage your mind, body, and mood without harmful addiction. These quick tips are an easy way for you to experience a balanced YOU that will give the tools to get off the ever swirling merry-go-round and allow you to move forward toward what you want in life.

1. Use your love of music by understanding why we love it

The body is made up of frequencies just like music. It would make sense that you could use one to affect the other. You might feel like you can’t move forward because of a negative emotion or stress that stops you from moving to the next step. What happened? How do you get moving again? This is where music can be used as a simple and easy tool. To release these problems, the best type of music is classical music that has a lot of noise, and abrasive sounds. The purpose for this structure is to break through the blockages and allow the body to release that negative emotion. Be prepared to allow feelings like repressed anger, guilt, grieving, and maybe even problem relationships to appear. The next step is to talk with someone about it, or pray about it. Listening to music as a tool may cause you to cry, but that’s okay–JUST LET IT GO.

2. Shift from low energy to high energy and back again

When your energy is low and you have a long day in front of you, what do you crave? Many of you reach for that cup of coffee, or a soda with caffeine to give you energy. You know it’s addictive, right? Instead use a healthier and more enjoyable way to energize your body. For 5 minutes, listen to energizing music that you like. Have you ever heard foot-tapping music that caused you to get up and move? The relationship of brain-wave frequencies is what contributes to the changes in your moods and actions. The structure of the music is changing your brain wave from wanting to be relaxed to get up and go–the result is energy. The same can be said for wanting to relax. Now you know how to change your mood without harmful addiction. What a great fun addiction–MUSIC!

3. Make an appointment with yourself to enhance your mood

Just as we make appointments with our hair stylist, it is time to make an appointment with yourself to strengthen your brainwaves to continue to give you the balance you seek. One of my clients was having trouble going to sleep and staying asleep. We decided 30 minutes before bed she would find her quiet place, have a hot cup of tea and listen to soothing music like Enya’s Watermark. After only a couple of weeks of this relaxing routine she experienced restful healing sleep. Music is really amazing when you use this simple tool to create a balanced YOU.

Your first step is set up selections that will help you and then be sure to listen to these selections for changing your brainwaves. Now think of your day and where you can use your choices to help you have a successful day. When you are feeling tired use your energy music, when you have a task needing to be completed but you are distracted, pop in your focus music and get back on track. When you are feeling depressed or lonely use that wonderful uplifting music. To shift your mood, listen to your selection for five minutes and enjoy the benefits without harmful addiction. Surround yourself with the beauty of music. Music creates more balance & harmonizes the electrical frequencies within the body. Use music as your “power tool” to create a balanced YOU.

Action: Take your favorite music and find out what will help with energy, relax, focus, heal, uplift, cleanse, and create, which leads to a more balanced YOU.
